History of Jermyn Street

Jermyn Street, which sits in London’s luxury quarter in the lively West End, has been synonymous with stylish sophistication for 350 years, ever since Henry Jermyn, the 1st Earl of St Albans, was asked by Charles II to develop a new residential area that became St James’s. Illustrious figures - writers and scientists, royals and prime ministers - have lived and socialised here over the centuries, drawn by its bespoke tailors, gentleman’s shops and members’ clubs. Inextricably linked to Jermyn Street are names such as Sir Isaac Newton, Sir Walter Scott, W. M. Thackeray, Henry Jermyn - and perhaps most famously, the iconic figure and arbiter of men’s fashion, George ‘Beau’ Brummell.
