I had always wanted to go to this church because of family history - my 4x great-grandfather got married here in 1815. The church is a great building which is hardly surprising as the architect is Wren, and there are magnificent pieces by Grinling Gibbons...More
The Gibbons carvings are wonderful, but what brought me here was a performance by the Porcupine Players of Mozart's Magic Flute. It was quite magical indeed. Enthusiastic --and sometimes excellent--singing and performances (Papgeno/Queen of the Night, especially), touching staging (children stealing every scene they were...More
Located a block from Piccadilly Circus, this Christopher Wren-designed church is a little gem. Significantly damaged in WWII, it has been restored. The Grinling Gibbons baptismal font and altarpiece are works in themselves and the stained glass is quite lovely. The church offers free lunchtime...More
This Christopher Wren designed church long before it became increasingly surrounded by shops and offices, explain it's seemingly odd places in the heart of Piccadilly. The stained glass windows are magnificent and the interiors arches are English Baroque in miniature. It can be quite dark...More
We were strolling around Piccadilly passing time before a theatre show, so we decided to go into the church. As it happened, there was a recital by an orchestra of young pupils, so we sat for a while and enjoyed both the classical music as...More
We stumbled onto St James's Church while strolling along in busy Piccadilly. The initial attraction/detraction was the market place in front. The church itself is quite beautiful and welcoming. Fabulous stained glass windows, high arched ceiling, columns and wood work. A serene and peaceful place.
We enjoyed a quiet respite in this small church in the middle of crazy Piccadilly. The church is free to visit and very lovely to see after a visit to St Paul’s for contrast. Looking for crafts on a Tuesday, but only food stalls were...More
On a Monday and Tuesday you can pick up a fantastic street food meal for a song!
Chose from Istanbul, Greek, Spanish you name it they have. Wide variety of stalls selling delicious food. We went for the Lamb with humus and salad wrap and...More
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing
junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
