Jermyn Street

Jermyn Street is, personally, my favourite street to shop on.  Located just steps from bustling Piccadilly Circus it offers a calm respite from the heavily touristed shops nearby.  Along a short stretch of road between Regent Street and St. James’s Street you will find a wonderful array of small upscale shops catering mostly to men (though a few women’s items can be found!).  It is a street that has a quintessentially British feel to it as it’s laden with shops that have sold their wares for hundreds of years (though not always in this location) and yet still offer a feeling of intimacy, discovery and uniqueness.  With its welcome dearth of the ubiquitous High Street shops, you will find everything from haberdashers to shaving accessories, and from tailored shirts to cheeses.
