NEW TOUR: NEIGHBOURHOOD - ST JAMES AND HISTORIC WINE CELLAR (3 HOURS) The area of St James in central London is an exclusive enclave - an enclave of tiny pubs, antique merchants, small luxury hotels, hidden restaurants and unique shops.
We are delighted to offer a private tour of this neighbourhood and give you an insight into one of London’s great little historic ‘enclaves’. The reason why St James exists at all is due to St James’s Palace; a 16th century building with royal apartments in use. The royal court of St James, as you can imagine, requires certain luxuries, services and products. The palace ensures that local businesses thrive, the best tend to have the privilege to display a royal warrant, a badge of proof that the business supplies a specific member of the royal family with goods or services.
There are a number of very small pubs serving traditional ales, private clubs and a very old barbers shop hidden in a back street. Most of all, St James is a centre for men’s grooming, shirt shops, tailors and shoe makers can be seen. After your off-the-beaten-path walking tour, discover and tour the historic wine cellars of 380 years at The Stafford.
The tour will be hosted by Gino Nardella, Master Sommelier of 37 years of our wine cellars and 1 of 250 in the world. It will also include a historical overview of the cellars and a tour of our war museum and a glass of hand selected wine by Gino. Contact us for more information.
