It was the 30th December, a night of freezing fog. A night when nearly all the flights from Heathrow and Gatwick had been cancelled. We could hardly see... More

The food they serve at The Foyer is really of an outstanding level. It is so good that you really want to ask the chef how it did prepare it.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
