Take a look inside the world’s oldest cigar merchants - and one of the last remaining public places in the United Kingdom where people can still smoke inside. Cigar merchants James J. Fox, based in London’s upmarket Mayfair region first opened its doors in 1881 in Dublin, before moving to London in 1947. The tobacconist has received eight Royal Warrants over time, with the last being issued by the Queen Mother in 1997 and they still continue to supply cigars to the royal household.

The cigars they make range in price from £20, but if you feel like splurging, you will have to cough up hundreds of pounds for one of their ultra-rare pre-Castro pieces.

Cigar lovers can also take a stroll around the in-store museum, filled with historical memorabilia. The collection includes historical ledgers and cigars from the 1851 Great Exhibition and even one of Churchill's many famous hats and the chair he would sit in whilst choosing his cigars in store.
