About St James's Park

St James's is an area of central London in the City of Westminster. It is bounded to the north by Piccadilly, to the west by Green Park, to the south by The Mall and St James's Park and to the east by The Haymarket. In the 1660s, Charles II gave the right to develop the area to Henry Jermyn who proceeded to develop it as a predominantly aristocratic residential area with a grid of streets centred on St James's Square. Until the Second World War, St James's remained one of the most exclusive residential enclaves in London. Famous residences in St James's include St James's Palace, Clarence House, Marlborough House, Lancaster House, Spencer House, Schomberg House and Bridgewater House. It is now a predominantly commercial area with some of the highest rents in London and, consequently, the world. The area has a good number of art galleries, covering a spectrum of tastes. Carlton House Terrace is a pair of grand terraces of houses designed by John Nash overlooking St James's Park.
