Just a few minutes’ walk from your Mayfair serviced apartments, you will discover the homes of numerous famous faces who have lived in the area throughout history.
From musicians to politicians and celebrities, Mayfair is full of hidden history and monuments to the places these people lived. Here’s just a few of our favourites.
Perhaps one of the most surprising secrets of Mayfair is the house in which the two musical geniuses, George Handel and Jimmy Hendrix lived. Separated by two centuries, 25 Brook Street is the perfect destination for the diverse musical fan.
If you’re looking to broaden your cultural understanding of both 18th Century oratorio and 20th century rock and roll simultaneously, then this is certainly the place to do so.
Mayfair is a hotspot for musical geniuses from around the world. It may also surprise you to hear that the district was home to a young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart for just one month on 1764, during the family’s European tour.
Short as that time may be, it certainly wasn’t too short for the eight-year-old Mozart to take advantage of the space and pen his very first symphony right here in Mayfair. Today, a plaque stands on the outside of the house commemorating him – which is definitely well worth a visit during your short stay in Mayfair.
From music we turn to politics, and just a short walk from your London serviced apartments takes us to 93 Eaton Square, where the British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin once lived. He first entered parliament in 1908, and proceeded to become Prime Minister in 1923, 1924 and then again in 1935.
Much like on Ebury Street, a plaque stands, which commemorates the time that the former Prime Minister spent in this home. If you’re feeling beady eyed during your short stay in Mayfair, why not see if you can find the other Mayfair blue plaques commemorating former Prime Ministers – Anthony Eden and Margaret Thatcher?
