The market has a tranquil air to it - surprising for a spot so central - that makes it the perfect spot for escaping the crowds. It’s home to a charming pavilion, used to display local art installations, and there’s remarkably beautiful public seating for resting weary legs. More bespoke art piece than bench, the striking seats were designed by London-based design duo Studio Swine. The duo (Japanese architect Azura Murakami and British artist Alex Groves) took cues from the local area, finding inspiration in the culture of craftsmanship in nearby Jermyn Street.
From masterclasses at the local restaurants to local cultural events like the Lumiere festival, there’s always something going on at St James’s Market. The space has been known to feature live orchestras, dancing, and even, last summer, an outdoor champagne bar, so it’s always worth nipping by.
