The Americans of Mayfair
From just after the War of Independence to the present day, the Americans have had a special relationship with Mayfair.
Rock stars, Hollywood icons, and Presidents have all lived, stayed and worked here.
Discover the house where John and Abigail Adams lived, the hotel with a unique place in the history of one of America's most celebrated families, and the church where Eisenhower worshipped.
This new walk starts on Stratton Street. Take the Stratton Street exit from Green Park tube, and I will be at the top of the stairs. Pre-booking is however essential, but if you want to join the walk at the last minute, or check if it is still going ahead call me on 07740818270.
Five star review for this new walk from Tripadvisor in July 2016:
Michael was knowledgeable and accommodating and filled the walk with very interesting little snippets of information that made it all come alive in a beautiful part of London that I thought that I knew but found my knowledge much enhanced and widened. He is a warm and excellent guide.
Tripadvisor reviews of Michael's other walks:
"Michael Duncan's Spies of Mayfair walk on Saturday was superb: intelligently conceived, well researched and genuinely fascinating. We've done two of their walks now and are looking forward to trying more."
"I loved this walk and the information provided. I have lived and worked in London all of my working life and had no idea I had walked in the footprints of some of England's most notorious spies. Highly recommended in this mixture of very busy and very quiet streets."
"This is a really fun and interesting walk. Michael is very knowledgeable, we learned a lot. I recommend it to anyone!"
"Had a very enjoyable walk with a charming guide, Michael who has an easy manner and an obvious passion for his subject. He is very knowledgable about Savile Row, gentlemen's tailoring and the history of the area. I throughly recommend this leisurely walking tour with Michael and thank him for keeping pace with all my questions." (August 2016)
