Jermyn Street runs parallel to Piccadilly and is famous for its tailors.
It was built during the 17th-century on land owned by Henry Jermyn, who quickly filled it with Victorian hotels. These were all demolished by the 1840s, and in came the shops – hatters, shoe fitters and shirt makers – intent on selling their suits to the gentleman who frequented the clubs in Pall Mall.
Jermyn Street was once the home of Isaac Newton, whose house was at the same spot as No.87. And No. 113 was the home of Thomas Wall – who gave his name to Wall’s Ice Cream.
