St James's Gazette was a London evening newspaper published from 1880 to 1905.

The paper was founded by H. H. Gibbs, later Baron Aldenham, a Conservative banker. Its first issue was on 31 May 1880,[1] and its first editor was Frederick Greenwood,[2] who brought with him staff from the Pall Mall Gazette.[3]

In 1888 E. Steinkopff bought the paper from Gibbs, and Sidney Low became editor. In 1897 Hugh Chisholm succeeded Low as editor.[4] The paper amalgamated with the Evening Standard on 13 March 1905.[1]

The St James's Gazette represented the more intellectual and literary side of Tory journalism in opposition to the new Liberalism, more of a daily review than a chronicle of news.
