MAYFAIR ECCENTRICS - YOUR DEFINITIVE MAYFAIR RESOURCE

MAYFAIR: The village idyl in Central London nestled between Oxford Street, Park Lane, Piccadilly and Regent Street, Mayfair is exceptional in that it still maintains the charm of a traditional English village in the heart of London.

Mayfair has long been the figurative and oft times literal home of eccentrics and artists, from Nancy Mitford to Oscar Wilde, to Handel. Royal connections are every where - Queen Elizabeth II was born on Bruton St, Mayfair and many of Mayfair's shops and services have Royal Warrants.

MayfairEccentics.com is your definitive resource for all things Mayfair.

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.
