“The historical courtyard at DUKES St. James’s Place has been traced back to 1532 when King Henry VIII bought a convent at the bottom of the hill. In its place he built St. James’s Palace as a hunting lodge and refuge from the feckless gossip which pervaded court life at the Palace of Whitehall. St James’s Palace remained a royal residence until the mid-19th Century when Queen Victoria made Buckingham Palace her home. During Charles II’s five year reign from 1660,  St. James’s Place became the highly fashionable area that still is nowadays. After the King’s death, the courtyard was known as Cleveland Court and the two houses which it contained formed a small inn. These buildings became DUKES in 1908.
