Our St James's Atelier takes inspiration from Jermyn Street's heritage as the home of gentlemen's style. The custom curved glass, tile, and wooden facade uses traditional techniques and elegant detailing as a nod to the refined skills of the craftsmen and women in the area. St James's academic past also serves as inspiration, reflected in the store’s geometric tiles and custom-built library ladder.
The St James's Collection
A number of our stores have their own collection of bespoke, made-to-order frames, offered in nearly two hundred acetate colours or ethically-sourced water buffalo horn. Available exclusively at our Jermyn Street location is our 16 piece St James's Collection, as well as our offering of bespoke and ready-to-wear horn.
Make a day of it
Our favourite spots close to Jermyn Street, curated by the team.
St James's Park Lake: Flanked by Westminster to the south and The Mall to the north, the green oasis of St James’s Park has one particular highlight: the lake. Make like the resident pelicans (first introduced as a gift from the Russian Ambassador in 1664) and find a sun-dappled spot in which to soak up some rays. St James’s Park, London SW1A 2BJ
Paxton & Whitfield: Established in 1742 and gaining the first of its many Royal Warrants in 1850, this traditional cheesemongers is, frankly, glorious. As well as their exceptional cheese offering, they sell smart culinary accessories, gift hampers and groceries, and run the Academy of Cheese: a place to learn about making, tasting, and presenting the good stuff. 93 Jermyn Street, London SW1Y 6JE
The Red Lion: When the glitz and glamour of St James’s gets too much, head for a pint at this delightful Victorian boozer. First opened in 1788, the building that stands today was constructed in 1821 and made it through the Blitz unscathed. This lucky escape means it’s a rare example of an authentic British pub right in the heart of London. Enjoy. 2 Duke of York Street, London SW1Y 6JP
