Mayfair has long been familiar to Monopoly players as the most expensive property on the board and in real life, this area of central London still retains its wealth and exclusivity. Named after the old May Fair that was once held here annually, the district is surrounded by the great attractions of Hyde Park, Oxford Street, Piccadilly, Green Park and Regent Street. Although today's Mayfair is a thriving centre for commercial and corporate activity, it remains lived in, and residents and visitors alike enjoy its imposing architecture and grand spaces such as Berkeley and Hanover Squares. Grosvenor Square is home to the US Embassy. Mayfair is notable for its abundance of first-class restaurants, hotels and clubs, with shops selling luxury goods, jewellery, antiques and expensive clothing in Bond Street, Savile Row, the chic village of Shepherd Market and the 19th Century Burlington Arcade, adjacent to the Royal Academy of Arts. The Handel House Museum, the former home of the composer, is in Brook Street, near the world-famous Claridge's Hotel. Queen Elizabeth II, born in Bruton Street, heads a list of leading Mayfair residents that includes British prime ministers and statesmen, American presidents, poets, writers - and rock guitar pioneer Jimi Hendrix.
