In its heyday, the area of St. James’s was where dukes and dandies lived and socialised. It was the height of fashion and the place for wealthy gentlemen. Today the charming genteel streets continue to thrive on tradition and quintessential Englishness. St. James’s is home to some of the most impressive houses in London, old English shops and members’ clubs. But why and how did it develop into such a gloriously exclusive area? And who were the characters that helped shape it?
