Making the Most of Your Time in St. James's and Mayfair
Making the Most of Your Time
Reserve at least a day to experience St. James's and Mayfair. Leave enough time for shopping and also to wander casually through the streets and squares.
The only areas to avoid are the Tube stations at rush hour, and Oxford Street if you don't like crowds.
At all costs, stay away from Oxford Circus around 5 pm, when the commuter rush can, at times, resemble an East African wildebeest migration—but without the charm.
The area becomes as quiet as a tomb at night—so plan to party elsewhere.
