Who lives in Mayfair?
If you go back to the mid-1800s it was said that the world was run from the houses of Mayfair. On the Grosvenor Estate there were somewhere in the region of 270 residencies and there were 170 titles in residence. This was the height and peak of the British Empire. The difference nowadays – people who run the world, in business or countries live here. The dynamic is still the same just the nationalities have changed slightly.
He forgot to mention, that you hardly find London born English people living in Mayfair.
