May is here! Hooray.
May is the month that Mayfair comes alive with the start of the social season.
In the 17th & 18th centuries it was the agricultural May Fayre – that ultimately gave this marshland to the west of The City its name.
LONDON CRAFT WEEK
With the backdrop of The Badminton Horse Trials, The Royal Windsor Horse Show and of course RHS Chelsea Flower Show;
Mayfair kicks off with London Craft Week (9-13th May)
Showcasing an amazing exhibition of crafts in our “cathedrals of retail”.

Craftsmanship has never been in more demand – there is a trend to possess items that have combined imagination, individuality, passion, skill and knowledge.

MAY IN MAYFAIR
I attach link of our May in Mayfair Wetherell Portfolio showcasing £50M of houses and apartments for sale in the area.
As William Shakespeare wrote in Henry IV Part I – “As full of spirit as the month of May and gorgeous as the sun at midsummer” – our Mayfair homes for living come alive with the village like feel of the area as coats are shed and pavement dining begins.
I recently read that there are now over 50 private members clubs in Mayfair & St James’s – now joined of course by the new Annabel’s in a whole new building in Berkeley Square.
