Did you know? 

Mayfair is one of the most desirable areas to live due to its rich history, art, and culture, as well as its prime location in the heart of London's West End. It is known for its luxurious and exclusive properties, which are highly sought after by affluent individuals and families. Mayfair is home to many high-end galleries, including Sotheby's, which has been the world's largest marketplace for art and luxury since 1744. The area is also rich in history, with landmarks such as the oldest man-made object in London, an Egyptian sculpture dating back to before 1600 BC, located above the door of Sotheby's.

Mayfair is also a hub for art and history enthusiasts. The Royal Academy of Arts is located in the area and is home to many exhibitions and events showcasing some of the world's most renowned artists. The area is also steeped in history and is home to many important landmarks such as the Handel & Hendrix in London museum, which celebrates the lives of two of the greatest composers in history.
