View of Blue Ball Yard
General view of Blue Ball Yard, Westminster.

This cobbled yard is approached through an archway to the west of St James's Street. It is likely to have been named after the nearby Blue Ball Tavern that was demolished in the eighteenth century. Originally coach houses built in 1741-42, it was later developed into the Stafford Hotel and St James's Garage under the awning, where they hired out Daimler cars. Steps lead up to the upper accommodation level.
