Description
Join me on an off the beaten track walk to explore the gorgeous streets of Mayfair and St. James's and their long-lasting relationship with art, design, and fashion. Let me show you my favourite hidden gems whilst we hear the amazing stories of the area and admire stunning Victorian architecture. During this tour, you'll learn about the oldest department store in London, discover an infamous tale of an early influencer, and discover the shop that inspired Alice in Wonderland's Mad Hatter character as well as Churchill's cigar merchants. We will uncover the history of the traditional brands of Savile Row that invented iconic garments we still wear today and discover stores that hold Royal Warrants that date back 300 years. I will give you insights on British style and designer names while we visit a cutting-edge concept store and charming, one-of-a-kind shops. By the end of this tour, you will understand the history of items that still influence fashion as well as discover why London is so iconic in the design world. This tour can be 100% customized, just get in touch!
