James Smith & Sons was established in 1830 when James Smith made all his umbrellas in a workshop at the back of his shop. Today the shop is still crammed with umbrellas of all shapes and sizes. A selection of other accessories such as walking sticks are also available.

James Smith & Sons Umbrellas London Reviews

Old World Charm, Modern Umbrellas - James Smith sells umbrellas and walking sticks. It might seem very specific but actually it's nice to have a shop where the assistants actually know everything about the items they sell. I described what I wanted and they recommended exactly the right thing for the job.

It tends towards the quality end of the market so this isn't the place for a £3 pocket umbrella.

In terms of the interior it feels almost kitschly old-fashioned with the shop staff smartly turned out and the back room staff in aprons. However part of the charm is the fact that it has one foot firmly in the past.
