The square was fully built up between 1735 and 1746 by Edward Shepherd from an open area called Brook Field, through which flowed the Tyburn,
and where a May fair was held, from which the surrounding area of Mayfair derives its name.
A local architect, he was commissioned to develop the site and work was completed in the mid-18th century. It contained paved alleys, a duck pond, and a two-storey market topped by a theatre.
Shepherd Market is between Piccadilly and Curzon Street in Mayfair. As a street it is 400 feet (120 m) long. The Curzon Mayfair Cinema and Al Sultan restaurant punctuate its eastern end,
and the transition to residential street, Market Mews, where at right-angles crosses Hertford Street.
