St James's Palace

St James's Palace

St James’s Palace is one of London’s oldest palaces. It is situated in Pall Mall just north of St James’s Park. Although no sovereign has resided there for almost two centuries, it has remained the official residence of the Sovereign and the most senior royal palace in the UK. For this reason it gives its name to the Royal Court The palace was commissioned by Henry VIII on the site of a former leper hospital dedicated to St James the Less from which the Palace and its nearby Park retain their names; the hospital was disbanded in 1532. The new palace, secondary in the king's interest to Henry's Whitehall Palace was constructed in the red-brick Tudor style around four courtyards: its gatehouse survives on the north side, flanked by polygonal turrets with mock battlements fitted with Georgian sash windows.
Two of Henry VIII's children died there:Henry Fitzroy, 1st Duke of Richmond and Somerset and Mary I (Mary's heart and bowels were buried in the palace's chapel royal. Elizabeth I was said to have spent the night there while waiting for the Spanish Armada to sail up the channel. Charles I slept rather less soundly—as it was his final bed before his execution. Oliver Cromwell then took it over, and turned it into a barracks during the English Commonwealth period. It was then restored by Charles II (Charles I's son), who also laid out St James's Park. It became the principal residence of the monarch in London in 1698, during the reign of William III and Mary II after Whitehall Palace was destroyed by fire, and became the administrative centre of the monarchy, a role it retains.

The Strand

The Strand

The Strand starts at the end of Fleet Street (Temple Bar) which marks the boundary of the City of London at this point and enters the City of Westminster.

At the east end of the street are two old churches, St Mary Le Strand and St Clement Danes which are now, owing to road-widening, situated on islands in the middle of the road. The length of road from St Mary's church eastwards up to St Clement's was widened in 1900 and subsumes the former Holywell Street which forked from Strand and ran parallel with it to the north. The Strand marks the southern boundary of Covent Garden.

The Strand is the home for many famous buildings such as Somerset House, Essex House, the Savoy Hotel, once the Savoy Palace etc.

The Queen’s Chapel of the Savoy is a chapel off the Strand and behind the Savoy Hotel dedicated to St John the Baptist. It was originally built in the medieval era off the main church of the Savoy Palace, later to become the Savoy Hospital. The Hospital was in ruins by the 19th century, and the Chapel was the only part to survive demolition
