Gift & Specialty Shop
Set in a historic Victorian shop, James Smith & Sons offers a vast selection of sophisticated umbrellas, canes, and seatsticks for women and men. This privately owned company was founded in 1830 by the same family that still runs the business. Notice the interior, featuring original dark wood and glass cabinets, which have remained practically intact since 1865. Some of the products in the store are still handmade in its basement workshop, just like in the old days. The shop also provides repair services.

  • Typical store of old England, sellers are very classes, always nice and polite, never obsequious. Umbrellas from home (other brands are present) are the most beautiful in the world, quite expensive, but still repairable...

  • Great quality on the products and better attention from the salesmen. They know their trade.
  • Very fun! Great variety of impressive umbrellas and canes. And great service
  • A must visit. One of the most Dickensian shops you will ever enter. I bought a 'proper' umbrella from this fine establishment 30 years ago (every man should have one) and it has served me well since. They do repairs too.
  • The store itself is beautiful. They specialize in walking sticks and stick umbrellas which they make. But they also sell other umbrellas from other brands. The umbrellas that they make are quite pricey but the quality is amazing and worth the investment.
  • This place is crazy!!! I never saw so many umbrella in one go!! Worth a visit!!
