St James’s is a treasure trove of history, culture, and modern amenities. Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a local looking to rediscover the area, there's no shortage of activities to enjoy and places to explore.


Start the day as you mean to go on with a hearty breakfast and some caffeine at 45 Jermyn Street. Once everything has been digested, it’s time to head out and wander through the historical streets. First port of call is to update your Spring wardrobe. With a range of stores and boutiques to visit, be sure to stop off at Moss for staple shirts and lightweight jackets for layering, Arteton to slip on a pair of beautifully crafted loafers or Oxfords, and Sirplus for an injection of pastel-coloured knitted polo shirts.


After a busy morning of shopping, it’s time to take a break. Head to Neon 194’s cafe and bar for a quick drink and bite to eat - an ideal place for coffee lovers and seekers of inspiration. After lunch, it’s time to explore the many galleries of St James’s, visiting the likes of Cristea Roberts Gallery to view original prints and drawings, and Stern Pissarro Gallery for Impressionist, Modern, and Contemporary art. In between meandering through impressive art collections, if it’s a nice day, take a seat and soak up the sights of Spring in St James’s Square, which is near to most galleries.


Hunger is probably on the cards after roaming through the many galleries. Head north to St James’s Market for a pre-theatre tipple and meal. For a relaxed atmosphere, head to Fallow for a delicious meal and cocktails made with carefully sourced ingredients. Whilst enjoying your meal, be sure to keep check of the time so you don’t miss your show. End your day with a memorable evening and take your pick from theatres, including the Jermyn Street Theatre which is proudly the West End’s smallest producing theatre. No day out in London, whether you’re a visitor or a Londoner, is complete without going to a show.
