Of all times of year, St James's is probably at its most atmospheric over the bustling days and twinkling nights of Christmas. The neighbourhood offers a truly unique and authentic festive experience, whether thats for the ultimate in present-buying options, or immersing yourself thoroughly into the spirit of the occasion at a whole range of seasonal events and gatherings.

The ongoing St James's workshops take an inevitable yuletide bent, with present-making, new crafts to be learned and other festive-themed one-offs, ideal if you want to add the most personal touch to your gifts. Details of all workshops can be found on the website link below.

Those in more of a hurry can equally rely on St James's to provide all manner of bespoke items and experiences to go under the tree. From personalised gifts such as Aspinal of London's engraved luggage, timeless embroidery, monogramming and fitted shirts at Jermyn Street icons such as Turnbull & Asser, or even creating your own scent at esteemed perfumers Floris.

The Christmas lights are turned on ceremonially this November 15th, marked by a special late-night shopping event that evening throughout St James's - an area that's your ultimate one-stop destination for all things festive.
