450 square metres of beautifully enclosed space with adjacent garden

The courtyard at St James’s is tucked between Jermyn Street and Piccadilly. It has 450 square meters of usable space (25m x 18m) with a maximum capacity of 130 people. (It sits adjacent to our Green Flag award-winning Southwood Garden, which has capacity for another 100 people.)

Our courtyard is well-known as a venue for a mouth-watering food market, outdoor music festivals, and cultural events of all kinds.

Access to the courtyard is through the main entrance gates from Piccadilly. There is a gently sloping disabled access ramp (see photo below). Unfortunately, there is currently no step free access to the Southwood Garden adjacent to the courtyard.

We clean and tidy the courtyard to high standard prior to the beginning of a hire, and Catherine our gardener ensures that all planted areas are well-presented. The courtyard is fully enclosed and by arrangement we can close the courtyard to the public for the duration of a hire.

Daily hire rates start from £500 for charities.
