Description
Information
An introduction by renowned historian Martin Gilbert sets Mayfair in its fascinating historical context and Michael Portillo contributes a series of lively introductions to each of the six main areas that make up Mayfair – Hanover Square, Berkeley Square, Shepherd Market, Grosvenor Square, Mount Street Gardens and Bond Street. Beautiful photographs and informative captions paint a picture of Mayfair that encompasses its rich history and dynamic present – whether describing Handel's church of St George's, the fabulous sculpture and art of its public spaces, the history of the famously louche Shepherd Market, its quiet havens and undiscovered gems or the sumptuous shopping experiences it affords.

Modern Mayfair is one of the most dynamic areas of London today, proud of its rich history and revelling in the energy of its cosmopolitan inhabitants. Gemma Levine has captured its unique spirit and style for everyone to enjoy.
