Britain By Car - A Motoring History

Mayfair

A district of west London, originally named after the fortnight-long spring fair that took place there each year.  The land first began to be developed, as we know it today, during the early 18th century when it passed to the Grosvenor family through marriage.

Although it has a reputation as a fashionable and expensive area, it is relatively diverse, with both social and private housing and a community drawn from all parts of the world.
