A headquarters on King Street or Jermyn St means easy access from Green Park station which is along the Piccadilly, Victoria and Jubilee lines. Also, around the corner is Piccadilly Circus underground station which is along both the Bakerloo and Piccadilly lines. If these connections don’t suit you then there are St James’s Park (District and Circle lines), Leicester Square (Northern and Piccadilly lines) and Charing Cross (Bakerloo, Northern and Rail lines) stations all within short walking distance. In addition to the great underground route options, bus stops are available at Old Bond street, Pall Mall and Green Park, thus last-minute diversions are never an issue.
On the High Street
It’s not unusual to miss out on specific shopping errands when high pace work life in London keeps you from easily getting things you needed yesterday. When located on the High Street, great shopping places are easy to stop in for quick buys. For example, Piccadilly Arcade offers the highest quality tailoring (Budd, Benson & Clegg, New & Lingwood, Neal & Palmer), womenswear (Favourbrook), footwear (Bowen, Jeffery West), jewellery (Heming, Deakin & Francis) and accessories (Swaine Adeney Brigg, Iconastas, Jean Rousseau, Carlo Anichini) in their respective markets, meaning you’ll be spoilt for choice without having to waste time traveling far.
St James’s Park
Come lunchtime and you may need some green space to refresh your mind and take a break from the workload. Commercial properties in St James’s has access to a variety of greenery to take your mind off a busy schedule and help break up the day, such as Green Park and St James’s Square. St James’s Park’s beautiful central lake is home to various water birds and surrounding flower gardens, making it a serene walking spot.
