Established in 1870 during a period of unprecedented adventure and discovery, founder William Penhaligon arrived in the vibrant city of London in the 1860’s to begin what would become an illustrious career. In 1874 he opened his first boutique on Jermyn Street, followed shortly by No. 33 St. James’s Street.
