About this event

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.

The walk starts on Stratton Street. 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 reviews for Michael's walk from Tripadvisor's Footprints of London entry

My adult daughter and I went on this walking tour yesterday and really enjoyed it! Michael Duncan was an excellent guide - friendly and informative and he showed us a very interesting mix of places associated with Americans in London. We discovered a part of London we knew very little about and would highly recommend the tour. We plan to do some of the other tours on offer.

Date of experience: January 2020

Fascinating Spy Walk

The Spies of Mayfair walk was a terrific insight into Cold War shenanigans in one of the most upmarket bits of London. Michael’s enlightening commentary and easy speaking style made it a great outing.

Date of experience: February 2019

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.

"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)
