What’s on this season: spring’s unmissable Mayfair moments
Enjoy the daffodils in St James’s Park
Mayfair is lucky to be home to three of London’s eight Royal Parks, which are collectively planted with over a million daffodil bulbs each year. Strolling in St James’s Park – just south of our home on Piccadilly – is one of the true joys of the capital during the months of April and May, where a seemingly never-ending carpet of daffodils is guaranteed to raise a smile (and fill your camera roll). While you’re there, don’t forget to visit the park’s resident pelicans who can usually be seen putting on a charming display next to Duck Pond Cottage.
Raise a glass to our new King at Mayfair’s Coronation Garden Party
