Two hour history tour around Mayfair:

On Richard’s walk about the story of London’s Grand Hotels we find out what Lord Byron’s butler did that was so revolutionary, how two embezzlers founded one of the world’s grandest hotels, and which hotel turned into a refuge for deposed European monarchs.  We look into some of the darker goings-on in London’s grand hotels including espionage, mafia meetings and assassination. We find great events and the great characters who passed through, as well as taking in the opulence and grandeur. And the walk plots a path through some of Mayfair’s fine thoroughfares and green spaces.
