Read more about Mayfair

It became well known for the annual “May Fair” that took place from 1686 to 1764 in what is now Shepherd Market. By the reign of George I, the May Fair had fallen into disrepute and was regarded as a public scandal. The 6th Earl of Coventry, who lived on Piccadilly, considered the fair to be a nuisance and led a public campaign against it along with local residents. It was abolished in 1764. By the end of the 18th century, most of Mayfair was built on with prestigious housing to suit the upper class. Mayfair is the most expensive property on the standard British Monopoly board at £400, and is part of the dark blue set with Park Lane.
