What is a Mews?
London’s iconic mews have humble origins as the service roads behind the grand houses of the Georgian and Victorian elites.
Mews properties were originally built in the 18th and 19th centuries to provide accommodation for the servants working in grand London mansions. They were created out of sight of their masters’ residences, usually on parallel streets. That’s why most London mews are found in tucked-away locations in some of the capital’s most exclusive areas.
