St. James's Church was the only Christopher Wren church to be built on a site not previously occupied by an earlier building, being part of the land given by Charles II on his restoration to Henry Jermyn, Earl of St. Albans. The foundation stone was laid in 1676, and the Church was consecrated in 1684.

St. James's has been famous for its fashionable and eminent congregations, and literary allusions are frequent, notably in the works of Evelyn, Defoe and Vanbrugh. The wonderful carving of the reredos is one of the finest works in lime-wood by Grinling Gibbons. Gibbons also carved the font depicting Adam and Eve and the Tree of Life. William Blake was baptised at this font and it is said that Handel, who lived nearby, used to pop into St. James to practice on the organ.

St. James's is one of London's most famous concert venues, boasting a delightful interior and superb acoustics.
