London Luxury: What to see and do in Mayfair – words Amy Turnbull

Planning a day out in London can leave you spoilt for choice, as with the many boroughs, landmarks and things to do, it’s often difficult to choose what spot to explore first.

One area that’s not short of rich culture, beautiful architecture and trendy hospitality is Mayfair, and whether its fancy brunching you’re after or arty outings, there’s plenty to do and see in this London luxury destination. Here’s our guide on how to have a great day out in one of the city’s most luxurious spots.

Go for afternoon tea

Amongst the pristine brick townhouses and designer stores of Conduit street lies Sketch, a Mayfair restaurant and bar like no other, and definitely not one to miss when visiting Mayfair.  Housed in an 18th century townhouse, Sketch is made up of multiple unique and quirky rooms all with their own distinctive charm. ‘The gallery’, decorated with the artwork of illustrator David Shrigley, is a picturesque paradise and a must see for lovers of all things pink. You simply have to see the Sketch pink room. Sketch stands apart from other trendy bars in Mayfair.
