It’s with great sadness that the Church Council announces the Piccadilly Market at St James’s will not re open in the New Year. In common with the experience of many retailers and businesses in central London, low footfall and repeated closures have made it impossible to continue. The number of tourists to Westminster, on which the market depends for customers, is not expected to recover for some time.

This was a difficult decision as the church courtyard has been host to many different market stalls since the 1980s and some of our current traders have been here for 10 years or more.

We thank you for all your custom over the years and the council wishes all the traders well as they look for new outlets in the future.

The Piccadilly Market is now closed.


A vibrant and charming market in the heart of London in the grounds of St James’s Church Piccadilly dedicated to selling an eclectic and unique range of food, arts, crafts, antiques, collectables and clothing from around the world.

Food Market: Monday & Tuesday, 11-5pm
Arts and Crafts Market: Wednesday to Saturday, 10-6pm

There’s always plenty to see

Set in the courtyard of the beautiful St James’s Church Piccadilly, the market is steeped in its own special atmosphere.

With its own on-site café, it’s a perfect place to enjoy an afternoon browsing for gifts and looking around the stunning church built by Sir Christopher Wren, architect of St Paul’s Cathedral.

Come and soak it in…
