Ok, there are crowds - it’s like Piccadilly Circus around here - but it’s a super vibrant part of town, really exciting area. Lots of fast food options. Great cinemas nearby.

What a great place to shop and have dinner. And at night it sparked with holiday decorations. People watching is fun. Take your time and enjoy.

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

Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing
