Despite the initial appearance of the market in it's grounds and the red brick, your breathe is taken away on entrance. What immediately takes your eyes is the striking barrel vaulted ceiling, the space and the light. Some amazing carving by Grinling Gibbons which is...More

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

We just missed the lunch time food service on the front yards of the St. James’s Church. We were told the church itself is part of Anglican Communion, not sure what it is all about though. Inside the church building was like historic churches are....More

I saw something in this church that I have never seen before. There are three columns of pews. There were men sleeping on all the pews on the left hand side. They didn’t have any bedding and yet every pew was taken, even the double...More

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier

establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
