Venue History: The Chesterfield Mayfair Hotel, located in the heart of Mayfair has a rich and varied history. Just off Berkeley Square, Charles Street was part of the land holding owned by Lord Berkeley. The street was named after King Charles I. The street was constructed between 1745-1750 by John Phillips, whose workshop survived well into this century.

The three private residences, numbers 34-36 which make up the Chesterfield, have known numerous wealthy, aristocratic and interesting occupants. The Christian Socialist Edward Vansittart Neale occupied number 34. As did the agriculturist, Colonel Sir Robert Fitz Hardinge Kingscote and more recently the Burrell Hoffman family of New York.

The most distinguished occupant of number 35 in the 1830s was Francis Jeffrey, Lord Advocate of Scotland. A friend of "men of letters" he loaned Thomas Carlyle money at a critical moment, sent money to the destitute Hazlitt as he lay on his deathbed, formed a friendship with Charles Dickens and edited Macaulays famous history. Other occupants included Sir George Duckworth and Martin de Selincourt, chairman of the Swan & Edgar department store.

By 1943 all three houses had been joined together to form annexes for the English Speaking Union. The Hotel still has access from its corridors in the Union today. The Hotel opened its doors on 29th April 1973 and has since become one of London's most prestigious superior four star hotels, offering every modern convenience for the business and leisure guest but retaining the elegance and ambience of its historic English past.
