Tradition and the noble English society play a role in London's St. James's district. Framed by Green Park, many gentlemen's clubs are located around St. James's Square. In addition, there are traditional stores for hats and cigars. The Institute of Contemporary Arts and the Royal Society can also be found here. Hotels are located in magnificent mansions, the whole district appears aristocratic and noble - no wonder, the district also scores with St. James's Palace, the official residence of the royal family.
