Mayfair comprises its name from an annual fair that was held at the site, which was once farmland before the stunning buildings and shops were built. The open fields were perfect for the fair, originally started for sale of live stock. This fair soon expanded to include booths dedicated to mirth and merriment.
The frivolities attracted many to travel across London and revel in the activities that lasted for a fortnight from the 1st of May. The noisy gathering was not at all popular with the nearby royals and the authorities. The annual fair eventually ended when a riot broke out in 1709.
The May Fair had a later revival following the death of Queen Anne but by that time many of the spaces had been occupied. The end of the May Fair was eventually brought around by the development and gentrification of the area. The fair itself had died out but the streets that had sprung up on those fields retained its name.
Most of the Mayfair area was developed between the 16th and 17th century as a fashionable residential district. These days, Mayfair s mainly commercial although there still remains a substantial quantity of residential property, along with some exclusive shopping areas and London's largest concentration of luxury hotels.
