Mayfair  -  Where the rich go to let their hair down

Scandals, riots and the untimely death of musical legends

It's taken a while but we've finally gotten round to doing a walk around one of London’s most interesting areas.

Mayfair isn't what it might seem on the surface - there's an underbelly of scandal and debauchery that may surprise you.

Our walk takes us from the grandeur of one of London’s finest hotels and on past the homes of Lords and Ladies whose stories fed the Sunday tabloids for many years.  

There's the site of Tariq Ali and Vanessa Redgrave's legendary 1968 march protesting the Vietnam war. Just a stone's throw away, is the contrast

of London’s up-market casino area and its high-class red light district.

We then pass the apartment where incredibly not one but two legends of the 60’s music scene took their last breaths.

We finish at the site of a notorious, legendary nightclub where it wasn't just carrots on the menu!

Our walk which lasts around two hours costs £10, payable on the day, will be illustrated by historical photographs and music. It starts at Claridges and ends in Park Lane; the full details will be sent to you a few days before the day of the walk.

Meeting place is opposite the Brook Street entrance of Claridges
