London is one of the most-visited cities in the world. During your stay in Mayfair, there’s a good chance you’ll want to check out some of the famous sights, from Buckingham Palace to the London Eye. Yet it’s worth noting that just a short walk from your central London serviced apartments, you’ll also find a hidden world that few tourists see. Here, we take you on a secret journey around Mayfair.
The Cartoon Museum
Perfect for adults and children alike, this little gem can be found within the centre of London, not too far from your Mayfair serviced apartment. The Cartoon Museum includes a fantastic collection of long-running magazines and comics made in Britain, including everything from Viz, to The Beano. Exhibitions showcase the origins of comic styling all the way from the 18th century, to more contemporary works, like the set for the London-based film ‘V for Vendetta’.
The Brook Street Musicians
Just a short walk off Bond Street will take you to some of the most exciting historical sites that London has to offer. By the time you reach the end of Brook Street, you’ll be face-to-face with some of the world’s greatest musicians.
Number 25 was home to German-born composer, George Frideric Handel. Known for his masterpiece ‘The Messiah’, he composed music for opera, theatre, and royal coronations alike.
Right next door, you’ll find Jimi Hendrix’s London flat, at 23 Brook Street. Stories say that Hendrix loved living in London during the 60s, and today, there’s a secret doorway that joins the Hendrix and Handel Houses together.
Avery Row and Lancashire Court
Next to the two famous homes mentioned above, you’ll find two of London’s most incredible lanes, Lancashire Court, and Avery Row. Boost the excitement of your short stay in Mayfair by exploring Avery Row. Avery Row is a cobbled lane full of bespoke stores and pubs, which follows the lost Tyburn waterway.
Alternatively, head in the other direction and visit Lancashire Court for a bite to eat before you head back to your London serviced apartments.
This location could easily be confused for a back street, but you’ll find that it’s actually a maze of wonderful exclusive Mayfair restaurants and stores.
