You may well find yourself in Mayfair for a couple of hours one afternoon – perhaps you’re between business meetings or meeting a friend in Central London later on. If you’re in Mayfair during the daytime and you have some time to spare, these suggestions should equip you to spend the perfect afternoon in Mayfair.
Shop til you drop.
Mayfair is home to some fantastic shops, so head for Bond Street if you’re after prestigious designer brands or The Burlington Arcades if you’re in the mood to find everything you need under one roof. You’ll be just in time for the new season’s ranges, and you could pick up a bargain!
Why not while away an hour or two browsing a gallery? If you’re into Surrealism or colourful European Pop-Art, the Mayor Gallery on Cork Street will suit you perfectly. For paintings, sculptures and antiques dating back to the 17th century, Richard Green on New Bond Street is the place to be.
Relax and unwind
After all that wandering around, treat yourself to a relaxing sit-down and a coffee at Toast, on South Molton Street. Here you’ll find a range of freshly brewed Italian coffees, and delicious salads, sandwiches and cakes. An hour or so spent poring over the papers or latest bestseller with a bite to eat is a great way to chill out before it’s time to get back to your busy day.
