London area of St James's guide
What to do and where to stay in London's St James's neighbourhood
Once the London home of the very wealthiest members of the British aristocracy, almost every building lining the streets of St. James’s is a palace – though now most play host to corporate headquarters and grand hotels rather than famous families. Pall Mall is the home of London’s gentleman’s clubs, in whose backrooms the new aristocracy of newspaper editors, CEOs, generals and investment bankers swig brandy and make insider deals. Their expensive tastes are catered to by the exclusive boutiques, delicatessens and tailors of Jermyn Street, and the grand theatres of Haymarket. To the south, St. James’s Park is one of the loveliest of the Royal parks, full of semi-tame wildlife and landscaped gardens. Stand on the bridge in the middle of the lake for a perfect London view, with Buckingham Palace on one side, and the palaces of Whitehall on the other.
