“They Came Back”: Americans in Mayfair

“You’ll be back“ sings George III in Lin-Manual Miranda’s musical Hamilton, addressing his rebellious subjects in the American colonies, and shortly after gaining their independence, they did come back. They came to London-and specifically to Mayfair-seeking diplomacy, investment, fame, success, and love. Take a walk with me and learn about the lives of a collection of Americans from different walks of life, backgrounds, and time periods and explore marvellous Mayfair along the way! The walk takes about two hours is covers a total of 1,6 miles. Ideal for Americans who want to hear a different take on their history, but also interesting for those keen to discover the American influence on Mayfair’s rich history and social fabric!
