Old Bond St. (Mayfair)
MERCHANDISELuxury goods; fashions
Ever since Mayfair was developed in the 18th century, this stretch of road has been a go-to spot for the rich-and-famous set. Originally known for its exclusive antique and art dealers, these days it’s international luxury retailers and design houses (think powerhouses like Chanel, Gucci, and Burberry along with trendier elements like Mulberry, D&G, and Miu Miu) that keep the well-heeled crowds coming.

WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s a British classic: ever stylish and sophisticated, but never taken in by passing fads or trends. A great place to come if you’re looking for high-end luxury from famous labels.
GOOD TO KNOW
Although it’s technically divided into "Old Bond Street" and "New Bond Street," Londoners generally don’t make the distinction. (The names refer to a 1740's extension of the street, so don’t mistake "New Bond Street" for an up-and-coming twin of "Old Bond Street"; they’ve both been around for centuries.)
