Saunter around St. James’s
Join us on a half hour walk around salubrious St. James’s in the West End of London. We start outside Buckingham Palace, home of HM Queen Elizabeth and then walk along The Mall, up through St. James’s to St. James’s Square and then towards Piccadilly Circus. We then turn back down Regent Street St James’s (also known as Lower Regent Street) and Waterloo Place before being back on the Mall facing St. James’s Park.
The area of St. James’s is full of art galleries, leading designers, independent shops, and world cuisine. Jermyn Street is an upmarket street famous for bespoke tailors and shops offering the finest gentlemen’s attire.
In the video we also head down Crown Passage, which is home to Red Lion, one of the most longstanding pubs in London’s West End.
In the 17th century the area was home to the British aristocracy and then around the 19th it became an area well known for its gentlemen’s clubs. After WWII the area transitioned from being a very residential area to an area for commercial use. The area still retains many of its original buildings.
St James’s boundaries are Piccadilly and Mayfair to the North, Green Park to the West, The Mall to the South and Haymarket to the East.
