Mayfair London is situated within the four great London streets of Park Lane, Piccadilly, Regents Street and Oxford Street. The area’s history for tolerance and discretion puts it at the heart of Roman Catholic London. The Church of The Immaculate Conception, can be entered via Farm Street or Mount Street Gardens. The London Gay Lesbian Transgender Community Catholics attend the 11am Sung latin mass on a Sunday, while society wedding guests are a frequent site, dashing to receptions across the road at The Connaught or nearby Claridges or The Dorchester.

Mount Street is the jewel of Mayfair, running between Park Lane and Berkeley Square. Nowhere else can one rub shoulders with the Queen, an oligarch and a scribe while crossing the road. No other address in the world has more cache, more power to impress, more association to great wealth and great losses, or history for espionage and intrigue, loyalty and betrayal than Mayfair.
