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.

Walked past the building and, upon seeing the Piccadilly Market in the courtyard, checked out the place further and realised it was St James’ Church. Lovely little market where you can find some clothing, antiques and bric-a-brac items. Outstanding with its red brick exterior, the...More

Designed by Sir Christopher Wren and consecrated in 1684, the church is an oasis in the heart of Mayfair. It was bombed in the Second World War, restored afterwards and, in addition to its religious role, holds regular concerts and art exhibitions. The nave is...More

St. James's
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
