Looking for an office Space in Mayfair… who can blame you?

Mayfair is named after the 15-day May Fair, once held every year in Curzon Street and Shepherd Market. Mayfair's expansive and handsome architecture has always attracted the very wealthy. For nearly 300 years the most influential people in the land have enjoyed its elegant squares, broad Georgian thoroughfares and beautiful parks. Mayfair also boasts the capital's most exclusive shops, hotels, restaurants and clubs.

Mayfair, what a place, no wonder this prime central London offices location is in high demand during all stages of the business cycle. Bordered and protected by the mighty quartet of Park Lane to the west, Piccadilly to the South, Regent Street to the East and Oxford Street to the north. >

Most of the area was first developed between the mid 17th century and the mid 18th century as a fashionable residential district, by a number of landlords, most notably the Grosvenor family and Queen Elizabeth II.

Go for a jog in Hyde Park or Green Park or take a leisurely stroll into one of the world famous squares, and you will see why so many of the worlds largest companies rent office space in Berkeley Square. Share an office with the likes of Cadbury Schweppes on the north of the Square, near the art galleries of Davies Street, or office space in Lansdowne House to the south of Berkeley Square, the original home of Saatchi and Saatchi, or how about serviced offices with this address: Berkeley Square House, Mayfair, London, W1, where you will have the pleasure of walking past or popping into to see a gleaming Bentley at Jack Barclay. When you walk through Grosvenor Square, which has a statue of Franklin D Roosevelt at its centre and is the home of the American Embassy, you get the feeling that you are in a special place, steeped in history, surrounded by some of the most famous streets in England, such as Grosvenor Street, Brook Street, and Duke Street.

If you have many foreign clients and want to rent office space in a London location near to one of the most famous hotels in the world, then look no further than an office in Mayfair. The Dorchester or the Hilton on Park Lane, The InterContinental or the Four Seasons at Hyde Park Corner, the Ritz on Piccadilly or Claridges on Brook St.

Hanover Square, a stones throw from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Circus, yet moments from New Bond Street, well known for its auction houses such as Phillips and Sotheby's. Old Bond Street, renowned for jewellery, antiques and clothing, must surely rate as the most prestigious retail address on Planet Earth - Tiffany, Cartier, De Beers, Versace, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton, the list goes on. If you rent office space near Savile Row, world-famous for it’s tailoring, then be ready to be recognised as the best dressed guest at the party. Communications are superb; choose from tube stations at Bond Street, Green Park, Piccadilly Circus or Oxford Circus. Getting to Mayfair is easy, but be prepared to want to stay!
