Great for men's shoes and clothing. Some of these outlets have been on Jermyn street for hundreds of years, and their goods are still made by hand to exacting standards. This does tend to mean that the goods are not exactly cheap, however - but if you have the money, difficult to beat the quality. Just beware of the 'wannabes'-... More

We visit London several times each year and usually have a walk along Jermyn Street where we window-shop the specialist shops. We particularly enjoy going into the ancient cheesemongers Paxton & Whitfield where the aroma is fabulous and there are cheeses you can try. There is very little traffic here and the atmospheer is less oppressive than say Picadilly or... More

We visited at the time of the sales and had a great time. Narrow streets but very well looked after with all the big names in shirt making represented- Pink and Tyrrhit to name a couple. Good prices if you are prepared to buy 2 or 3 shirts at a time.

Running parallel to Piccadilly, this street is famed for the menswear but do take in a meal too! There are some classics here!

Jermyn Street has a large number of specialist menswear shops plus some other shops. Prices are not cheap! It's a nice street to walk down and to do some window shopping. It's safe to pop into the cheesemonger amd shaving shops for a closer look. And take a quick trip down Piccadilly Arcade for some interesting shops. More window shopping.

The number of shops which cater for men's clothing are amazing. Great place to pick up ties, shirts etc. There are some book shops and other places of interest.

Jermyn St is an iconic district in London lined with tailors, shirt makers and shops both on the street and in little arcades selling all manner of accessories. Just wonderful to browse.

A mixture of shops and offices. Of course Fortnum & Mason is a must when visiting Piccadilly. There are many haberdashery establishments along this street. If your feeling peckish then a visit to Franco's is a must

Jermyn Street was first developed in 1664 under the authority of Charles II when the King granted Henry Jermyn [the 1st Earl of St. Albans] permission to develop the area. Of course there are some of the world's finest shirt-makers, clothiers and all things prerequisite for gentlemen on Jermyn Street, but, there's also Paxton's [short for Paxton & Whitefield] at...

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
