When St. James’ Court opened in 1902 it was patronised by the guests of Buckingham Palace and, today, continues to retain the sophistication of bygone days, with architectural features indicating its illustrious past, the most compelling is our award-winning Courtyard. An ornate Victorian fountain plays in a quadrangle of porches and pillars that glitter with a sea-green faience glaze. Linking the eight townhouses that surround this court is an endless frieze of figures – carved from the bricks that dance right round the quad – reputedly the longest Shakespearean sylvan frieze in the world. Explore our hotel gallery http://www.stjamescourthotel.co.uk/Gallery and experience the hotel’s distinguished pedigree shaped over more than a century, from the handsome façade and stylish lobby to the award-wining St. James’ Courtyard and Michelin-starred restaurant, Quilon.
We will, as usual, be organising a £5 raffle and the money raised will go to the President’s Fund to support students at London colleges.
This is an open meeting event and all are welcome.
