St James's & The Crown Estate
St James’s is an area characterised by its heritage, culture and architecture, but most importantly by the community that lives and works there. It’s synonymous with fine tailoring and British craftsmanship, for its shirt makers, luxury perfumers and, indeed, a concentration of high profile private galleries. It is the ultimate antidote to the high street environment.
The Crown Estate owns over 50% of the buildings in St James’s. We are committed to a ten year programme to invest £500 million in St James’s, with a clear strategy to revitalise the area for the long-term, whilst also protecting its future as a world renowned destination for fashion, culture and the arts.
As part of our vision for St James’s, we strive to invest in the area’s unique relationship with the arts, and support and promote its thriving arts community, and so we are very proud to support London Art Week.
