This new attraction is just a short distance from Piccadilly Circus at St James’ Market – a modern resurrection of the old 17th Century market.
Paper Aviary was launched on 15th February 2017 and is sited in the St James Pavilion.

Paper Aviary is a modern representation of Charles II’s aviary that once stood on the south side of St. James’ Park where Birdcage Walk is now.
With 118 examples of paper birds, most of London’s ornitholical life is represented. The smaller animals are on the lower displays whilst the bigger ones are on the upper displays. Its a great collection of brightly coloured origami pieces with many instantly recognisable shapes.
