While The Boy and I are reasonably happy to venture into town, we’re not going in that far and we’re choosing to go early before the shops open.
I love Mayfair for its historic architecture (The Boy is ambivalent about the area), although many original buildings have been stripped back to their facades only, with rebuilding going on behind.
Shepherd Market is a little village tucked away in the heart of Mayfair’s larger village. The area is a charming small square and piazza with a variety of boutique shops, restaurants and impressive Victorian pubs.
There’s history everywhere you look (and I’m a sucker for a blue plaque or two). There’s no denying that Mayfair is an incredibly wealthy area and this is often highlighted by residents’ cars …
But as I said earlier, it’s the architecture that wins me over …
Our walk began and ended at Green Park Tube and took a little over 2 hours (with a stop for takeaway coffee and cake). 🙂
