The area
Address
Neighborhood: St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
How to get there
  • Green Park • 4 min walk
  • Piccadilly Circus • 6 min walk

Seems very fitting that one of the smartest dressers of his day has a statue in this street with lots of gentlemen stores.

One day during our most recent extended stay in London, we had to been to see Buckingham Palace again. As we made our way back to the St. James’ Park tube station, we made a brief visit to Jermyn Street. This inner London Street is home to a number of distinguished tailors and gentlemen’s outfitters.
As we wandered along this street, we came upon this small but smart bronze statue of Beau Brummell. It is located adjacent to the entrance to Piccadilly Arcade.
As Brummell was renowned for his sartorial elegance, the placement of this statue in a London street associated with the supply and sale of men’s clothing seems appropriate.
This is certainly a handsome statue. It is not a “must-see” object but it is worth taking a quick look, should you find yourself in Jermyn Street or nearby.

This statue stands in tribute to George Bryan "Beau" Brummell, who was a well known figure during the 18/19th century during the period known as the Regency. Known principally for being a dandy, his manner, witty sayings, friendship with the equally opulent Prince George and falling out with said prince

This statue show Beau dressed as an early 19th century gentleman. The statue is nice enough to look at, but I can't help but feel the money would've been better spent on someone who actually contributed to society.

How fitting that there should be a statue to that doyen of sartorial elegance Beau Brummell in the middle of Jermyn Street London’s centre for all things menswear. It was sculpted by Irena Sedlecka and unveiled by Princess Michael of Kent in 2002. Its inscription reads: ‘Beau Brummell 1778-1840. To be truly elegant one should not be noticed.’

As you walk down Jermyn Street by the entrance to Piccadilly arcade you come to the statue of George Bryan "Beau" Brummell which was unveiled by Princess Michael of Kent in November 2002. He was in Regency England a gambler, dandy and for some time a good friend of the Prince Regent. He set the tone for the fashion of his day some say inventing the modern trousers. He died penniless in France in 1840. A interesting Statue to spends a few minutes looking at.
