The talented team of barbers at Pall Mall are some of the best in the world, trained in all aspects of modern barbering and able to answer any questions you may have about male grooming. You’ll find our Palmer Street barbershop in the heart of Westminster, right next to St. James Park station, but it’s also fantastically connected to the nearby Kings Road, Chelsea, Belgravia, Mayfair, Knightsbridge and Park Lane. Here’s our guide to what to see and do when you’re out and about.
Barbers Near Kings Road
As the rest of London sleeps, the food stalls at Duke of York Square are gearing up for a busy day’s trading. From 10am each Saturday, rain or shine, queues of hungry residents begin to snake through the weekly fine food market curated by Partridge’s grocer. The traders change a bit from season to season, but there’s a good chance you’ll find freshly baked sourdough bread, artisan cheeses and wild-caught seafood on any given day. Arts lovers are also well catered for. Just behind the market action sits the Saatchi Gallery. This is where the young Damien Hirst got his start in the 90s before going on to win the Turner Prize and becoming one of the biggest names in 21st century art. It’s fair to say that the gallery still has something of a reputation for hosting some of the most controversial and cutting-edge shows in the country. Hop on the District Line at nearby Sloane Square and it’s just two stops to our Westminster barbershop and its team of talented barbers, located minutes from St. James Park station.

Barbers Near Chelsea
If you carry on down the King’s Road, past the Chelsea Old Town Hall, you’ll eventually come to the World’s End. Well, not quite literally. But on his rides through the Royal Borough, King James II considered it “the end of the world” and the name just stuck. In the swinging sixties, the area’s hippy boutiques and spiritual bookshops made it the centre of London’s counter-culture scene and the favourite hangout of artists and musicians alike. The site of the 17th century World’s End pub has changed hands several times over the course of its colourful life, but the spirit of good beer and good cheer lives on with its current occupant. It’s now a bar and restaurant called The World’s End Market, serving up traditional pints alongside locally-sourced meat and seafood. The top deck of the 170 bus from Beaufort Street makes a pleasant journey down the river embankment, past the Chelsea Physic Garden and back up towards Palmer Street where you’ll find our Westminster barbershop near St. James Station.

Barbers Near Belgravia
With its quiet streets of specialist boutiques and eye-wateringly expensive houses, Belgravia has a reputation as a playground for the moneyed elite. Chester Square alone has seen a string of famous faces come and go over the past 200 years – Margaret Thatcher, Mick Jagger and Nigella Lawson to name but a few. But there’s a good reason to check it out even if you’re not in the market for a custom-made hat or mews house. Just on Belgravia’s borders, next to Sloane Square station, sits the Royal Court Theatre. It’s fair to say that it too has a bit of a reputation for showcasing some of the most provocative new works from up and coming playwrights from around the world. On a sunny day, it’s a pleasant walk to our Westminster barbershop on Palmer Street – Citymapper’s recommended route takes you around the edges of Green Park and right past Buckingham Palace. You can book here, or download our app on iOs or Android.
Barbers Near Pimlico
Just south of the commuter crush at Victoria Station are the comparatively quiet streets of Pimlico. It’s but a five-minute walk from the station down Millbank, where you’ll find the much calmer older sister of the Tate Modern near London Bridge. The Tate Britain houses a permanent collection of work from some of the most famous artists from the 16th century onwards, including William Blake, David Hockney and Francis Bacon. Walking back down the riverbank takes you to Vauxhall Bridge, where there’s an excellent view of the imposing offices of Her Majesty’s Secret Service – perhaps better known as MI6. Hop back on the Tube and change to the District Line at Victoria to get to our barbers in Westminster near St. James Station. Or don’t change at all – it’s less than ten minutes to walk if you take the Cardinal Place exit. You can book here, or download our app on iOs or Android.
Barbers Near Knightsbridge
It’s impossible to think of Knightsbridge without thinking the world’s most famous department store. Harrods sprawls across five acres of SW1 and attracts over 15 million visitors every year. If you can make it past the famous food hall and menswear departments on the ground floor, the opulent Egyptian escalators are waiting to take you up to seven floors worth of designer labels, more than a dozen restaurants and even a bank where you can buy gold bullion (or use the safe deposit boxes to store all the jewels and watches you’ve no doubt purchased on your visit). Cross over Sloane Street if you want to visit rival department store Harvey Nichols – the designer offering skews more towards cutting-edge labels for those truly in the know. Once you’ve had your fill of shopping and are ready for a more relaxing experience, there’s a plentiful supply of black cabs on Brompton Road waiting to whisk you over to Palmer Street and into the expert hands of our team of expert barbers in Westminster. You’ll know you’re there when you spot our red and white striped barbershop pole above the door. You can book here, or download our app on iOs or Android.
Barbers Near Mayfair
If you’ve got time for a stroll through St. James Park, it’s a pleasant walk from our Palmer Street barbershop in Westminster over to Mayfair. And if you didn’t get your designer fix in Knightsbridge, you can try Bond Street instead. If you start from the Oxford Street end, you’ll find Zara and the eclectic delights of Fenwick’s department store at the corner of Brook Street. Travelling a bit further down takes you past Dolce and Gabbana, Smythson, Burberry, Dior…well, you get the idea. Once you cross over to Old Bond Street, the shop windows suddenly change from pret-a-porter to priceless jewels – you’re in Big Spender territory now with the likes of Tiffany, Cartier and Bulgari. Perfume enthusiasts will want to take a detour to Burlington Arcade where Penhaligon’s, True Grace, Frederic Malle and By Kilian have opened their doors in recent years, making it into something of a mecca for fragrance shoppers. You can book here, or download our app on iOs or Android.
Barbers Near Park Lane
Park Lane sounds like it ought to be a quiet little street, but it’s actually one of the busiest roads in London. Black cabs and buses (or a chauffeur- driven Mercedes, if you’re staying at the Dorchester) zip through at all hours of the day, ferrying passengers between the West End and Knightsbridge. But this is where you’ll find Hyde Park, the largest and most famous of London’s Royal Parks. Cross over through Cumberland Gate, and you’re at Speaker’s Corner. Since 1872, this little patch of land has been designated as a “free-speech zone” where Karl Marx, George Orwell and countless others with an urgent agenda have come to air their views. Leaving behind the soapboxes and hecklers, it’s a short walk to the Serpentine Gallery where it’s free to check out the contemporary art exhibitions. Curiously, Park Lane is also a hotspot if you’re in the market for a supercar (or just browsing). As long as you’ve got cash in the bank, you could drive off in an Aston Martin, BMW, Lamborghini or a Bentley. And if you do, it’s just ten minutes to our barbershop in Westminster and its team of experienced barbers. You can book here, or download our app on iOs or Android.
