St James's is characterised by its beautiful shop fronts and crafted goods, the masterpieces hanging in its leading galleries and an unmatched reputation for personal service. Defined by its four corners— Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Green Park and Buckingham Palace— St James's is a luxury quarter in the centre of London.
The website— stjameslondon.co.uk— is the go-to online resource, with a complete shopping directory and calendar, as well as many features. The local newspaper The Correspondent is full of details on shops, cultural events and St James's cafe culture and restaurants. You can follow The Correspondent on Twitter @stjameslondon.
At the right hand of royalty and Westminster, its heritage has produced a unique environment for the modern shopper. Highlights include the home of British shirtmaking — Jermyn Street; London's oldest cheesemongers — Paxton & Whitfield; London's first wine and spirit merchants — Berry Bros & Rudd; perfumers now in their ninth generation — Floris; and the highest concentration of royal warrant holders in the capital.
Exceptional dining can be found throughout the area, notably at The Wolseley and Michelin-starred 7 Park Place, in addition to eateries such as Villandry and Boulestin.
