Fodor's Review

This has to be the world's ultimate umbrella shop, and a must for anyone interested in real Victorian London. The family-owned shop has been in this location on a corner of New Oxford Street since 1857 and sells every kind of umbrella, cane, and walking stick imaginable (including some containing a small flask or a corkscrew). The interior is unchanged since the 19th century; you will feel as if you have stepped back in time. Umbrellas range from about £60 for a folding umbrella to more than £250 for a classic man’s umbrella with a carved animal-head handle. If the umbrella prices are too steep, James Smith also sells smaller accessories and handmade wooden bowls.
