JJ FOX, St James st, London

I visited JJ Fox in May 2013 whilst on business in London and had a great experience, from sitting in Winston Churchills chair to enjoying a fine cigar in the upstairs cigar lounge overlooking the streets of London.

The walk in humidor is well stocked with cigars from all over the world including America.

The staff were very informative and made my experience very enjoyable.

This is a British institution not to be missed when in London.
