St James's Sunday Morning Strolls - A Blue Badge History of Shopping Tour, St James's Palace, Sunday, 23. June 2019

Now that summer is here, St James's is celebrating by offering guided walks around its London neighbourhood between June 2nd - August 25th, inviting you to discover a part of town unique in its secrets and stories.
Over three hundred years in the making and still evolving, St James's is an iconic area of central London and to guide you through its hidden gems is your very own Blue Badge tour guide from the British Guild of Tourist Guides.
Blue Badge Guides are internationally recognised for excellence in their field and offer the gold standard when it comes to local knowledge. Our guides will host four walks that will lead you through the best this one of a kind area has to offer, from food & fashion to art & architecture.

St James’s History of Shopping Tour - Sunday June 23/July 21/Aug 18
Starting Point: Pall Mall/Cleveland Row entrance of St James’s Palace at the bottom of St James’s Street (nearest tube Green Park).
If it’s raining, the guide will wait around the corner on Marlborough Road, beneath the palace colonnade.
The presence of St James’s Palace has had a profound effect on retail in this area, which has one of Britain’s highest concentrations of Royal Warrant Holders – suppliers of goods and services who have served the Royal family for five years or more - and an unusually large number of independent, unique shops. One of the delights of modern St James’s is the gradual arrival of contemporary brands, hand-picked, frequently British, several of them holders of modern Royal Warrants. The walk winds its way through shops selling clothes, accessories, art and perfumes.
