Come explore the playground of the Bright Young Things!
From luxurious hotels to lavish blocks of flats, the ‘Art Deco in Mayfair‘ walking tour explores the area’s 1920s and 1930s architecture as well as the (in)famous characters (think Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel, Harry Gordon Selfridge and the Mitford Sisters) who once lived and worked in this exclusive enclave throughout the Jazz Age period.
‘I really think [Yannick’s] itineraries are fantastic – full of fascinating information and winding round areas that I’ve been close to, but never actually gone into, before. They are brilliantly researched and highly original. I enjoyed [the ‘Mayfair’ tour] enormously.’ – @LondonSlant
