Users' Travel Secrets


"Near the British Museum, the world-famous James Smith & Sons Umbrella Shop was founded in 1830 and is still owned and run as a family business. For more than 175 years the company has been making umbrellas, sticks, and canes for both ladies and gentlemen, and its reputation as the home of the London umbrella is well justified. The historic and beautiful shop is on New Oxford Street in the heart of London's West End and is a stunning reminder of the Victorian period. The shop retains the original fittings designed and made by the master craftsman employed by the business and is a work of art in itself."
