Summer's here at St. James' Court, A Taj Hotel

St. James’ Court, A Taj Hotel, London is welcoming the warmer weather with the launch of the quintessentially British Royal Vintage Summer Experience, and the opening of the magical St. James’ Courtyard - one of the capital’s most idyllic outdoor dining spaces.

Royal Vintage Summer Experience
St. James’ Court has launched the new Royal Vintage Summer Experience to celebrate the best of the British summers of old. The offer includes accommodation and a three-hour bespoke sightseeing tour of the capital in a vintage car. Guests are spoilt for choice with a stunning fleet of classic cars, which includes the Queen Mother's favourite Jaguar DS420 Daimler limousine 'Grand Princess’, the famous Downton Abbey Rolls Royce 'Gabriella’ and Lord Mountbatten's vintage Daimler 'Silver Baroness'. Guests can then return to the hotel and toast their royal stay with a floral themed afternoon tea. Guests can also make the most of one of the finest Golden Keys Concierge services, tailored treatments at the Wellness Centre and a host of on-site dining options including Michelin-star fine dining at Quilon.  

The Royal Vintage Experience starts from £395 based on two sharing, and includes accommodation in a classic room with breakfast, three hours use of a vintage car and an afternoon tea for two.  

Courtyard Summer Dining & Summer Afternoon Teas
St. James’ Courtyard, a hidden gem in central London, has reopened for the summer season with a new menu to tickle taste buds until September. The á la carte lunch and dinner menu includes summer dishes such as Scottish scallops with citron salt flakes, Masala spiced fish with mango kachumber and of course, BBQ favourites such as tenderloin burgers and ribs.   

To satiate the UK’s resurgent passion for traditional afternoon tea, the hotel’s Executive Chef, Vikas Milhoutra, has created a selection of afternoon teas to tie in with some key calendar events. Guests relaxing in the lush and leafy surroundings of the Courtyard can enjoy the Floral Tea (including chocolate flower pots, rose macaroons and orange blossom scones), the Wimbledon Tea (including Earl Grey shortbread, strawberry and cream mousse and macaroon delights) or the extravagant 24 Karat Gold Afternoon Tea, which includes Luxor Pure Gold 24K Brut Champagne, gold leaf jelly, flaked gold strawberry tart and white chocolate and gold leaf. All teas include a selection of scones and finger sandwiches.  

Guests at the sister hotel Taj 51 Buckingham Gate, Suites and Residences can also enjoy St. James’ Courtyard, centred between the two Taj Group hotels in London, for al fresco dining and wining.
