Mayfair, the number one spot on the monopoly board takes its name from the May fair which was transferred from the overcrowded Haymarket. Mayfair is a large block made up of six great estates bounded by Oxford Street in the north, Regent Street in the east, Piccadilly in the south and Park Lane in the west. This huge development began in the 1660s and shifted the focus of fashionable London westward. Due to residents complaints the May fair was suspended in the 18c and unlike other areas Mayfair remained fashionable. Although Mayfair refers to the whole block (see also Piccadilly, | Bond Street | Grovesnor Square | Burlington Arcade - all part of the block) the conation is more of the western strip. This is still one of the best addresses in London. It has a variety of architectural styles, not all the best, but it retains the air of a well bred Georgian neighbourhood. There are not many shops in this part of western Mayfair, but the ones there are - are palatial.
