Eastbournian society 2024 events – London walk: The making of mayfair and a fine fortune

There’s a whiff of scandal about how, in 1705, the Grosvenor family finally secured the estate which makes up much of Mayfair when a woman of sound mind was declared insane. This walk explores the Grosvenors’ tactics as developers of this bastion of aristocratic living. See Mayfair’s elegant streets and hear the echoes of a lifestyle enjoyed by landowning families who kept a fashionable house for the ‘London season’.

And… just what kind of fair used to happen in May to give the neighbourhood its name?
