Tucked away down Piccadilly, this little church is worth a look very well kept and peaceful inside as you would expect.

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

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

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
