Description

Led by ex-Mayfair barrister, and landscape and garden designer, Elizabeth FitzGerald, this private walking tour will introduce curious minds to a rich tapestry of history, colour, taste, plants and buildings, not to mention graveyard clearance (and pestilence!), architectural input, high aristocratic business acumen and the development of Mayfair, Green Park and St James Park.

Elizabeth's background gives her real expertise in ins-and-outs of Mayfair life. Beginning in Brook Street, the guided walk takes in the streets of Mayfair and winds its way through beautiful secluded gardens to Berkeley Square and beyond. Along the way, Elizabeth's captivating retellings of London's history come together to form a fascinating re-creation of Georgian London, with a present day break for refreshment in a beautiful Georgian mansion.

Before the tour, begin the day in appropriate style with lunch at Arnaud Bignon's double Michelin-starred Mayfair restaurant, The Greenhouse; opened in 1977, the Greenhouse has become a long-standing institution in the Mayfair restaurant scene. With Chef Arnaud Bignon under the helm since 2014, the restaurant is now re-defining classic French fine-dining, introducing exotic produce into classic French dishes.
