The London Hanover Square business centre is situated in a handsome 18th century building in the heart of Mayfair. This upmarket square, which was once home to members of the British aristocracy, has since seen its mostly residential buildings converted into office space. Local businesses include company headquarters of global property consultants, upmarket media firms and business consultancies. Set in a Grade II listed building, the centre is set to a high standard. Mayfair itself is seen as an attractive business location away from the City of London by the likes of private banks, hedge funds and wealth managers. The area also has many exclusive amenities.
