London: What To See And Do In Mayfair?

I'd like to do a walk in this area and have a draft list of things to see below. Would appreciate feedback on listed places as well as what might also be added. I'd also like to know what days Shephard's Market is open.

Start and end at Piccadilly Station. View the following sights in Piccadilly and Mayfair area:
St. James Church
Hatchard's Bookshop
Fortnum & Mason
Burlington Arcade
Royal Arcade
Ritz Hotel
Shepherd Market
Grapes Pub
Berkley Square
Mount Street Gardens
Grosvenor Square
Gray's Antique Market
South Molton Street
Hanover Square
Sevile Row

Shepherds Market is open for its particular speciality every night.

But British law does not permit this commerce to be transacted in the open air, on market stalls.

flanneruk, I'm not referring to the highly inflated prices associated with the frequent sale of those type of well-worn goods.

I thought there was a street market held in the area a couple of times a week in the DAYTIME!

Well no, there is no hay in Haymarket, nor shepherds in Shepherds Market, a small area of lanes wholly taken over by fairly good restaurants, many of them ethnic, at fairly low prices. I am not good at noticing prostitutes, but I think there may be none left in Shepherds Market these days.

I like your list and can add these
The Faraday Rooms in the Royal Institution, 20 Abemarle Street
The other Victorian shopping arcades, north of Piccadilly the Royal Arcade, and south of Piccadilly the Piccadilly arcade and the Princess Arcade
The Royal Academy
Lewin s tie shop and Paxton s cheese shop on Jermyn Street
The outside view of St George?s Church on St George Street
On Grosvenor Square, which you list, the armed reinforcements of the U S Embassy and the Roosevelt Memorial

The Royal Overseas League off St James Street, two fine Town Houses run as a club
Christies and Spinks Auctioneers on King Street
Lock s hatters and Lobb s shoemakers on St James Street

There's the Handel House Museum on Lower Brook Street, if you have any interest in the composer and the house in which he wrote "The Messiah". Not far from Gray's.
