Set in the heart of Mayfair, Bond Street is renowned for its abundance of high end, elegant stores selling designer fashion, luxury goods, fine jewellery, art and antiques. Described as having the highest density of haute couture stores anywhere in the world, the area attracts the rich, the famous and the simply curious.
Past residents of the street have included Admiral Horatio Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton as well as a number of distinguished authors and poets. Sotheby’s auction house has been at nos. 34-35 since 1917 and the ancient Egyptian sculpture over its entrance is believed to date from around 1600BC.
The area is home to some of the world’s most prestigious retailers and offers an unrivalled mix of history, traditional elegance and modern luxury.
