Is there a chance he has lost some more height than is suggested? When I see him on TV I always get a 6'3.5 - 6'4" impression, Personally I don't think he is over 6'4" now unless he has particularly bad posture.
Jaaack says on 2/Mar/14
I'm a 5ft5 1/2 guy, stood next to him when he came into my work. And he's about 11 inches taller than me. This was about 6 months ago.

I managed to get tickets to filming of top gear last Wednesday. Clarkson if stood straight I could see at 6'5 still. he has a huge head.
Looked much taller than the other two in person.
Jack whitehall was the guest and he was no way 6'2 (which I've seen). I'm gutted as next week it's Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad Jesse).

@ Bammer.

Have to correct myself on this. I just took a screen dump of them together, and I must admit Jeremy IS in fact a couple of inch higher than Tom, so 6'4˝" seems legit. Sorry for the Hiccup.
Bammer says on 10/Feb/14
Just saw Top Gear where Tom Hiddelston was the guest. If Hiddelston is 6'1,75" Clarkson is no more than 6'2" - there were literally no difference in their height whatsoever, so max 6 ft. 2 in. for Jeremy Clarkson.
lelman says on 28/Dec/13
Rob what do you think for James May? I think 183 isn't completely impossible for him, but I don't see him above 6 foot.
[Editor Rob: certainly not above 6 foot, although Clarkson can look 6ft 4 a fair amount, I don't think his genuine long head helps his height at times, nor his posture which is worse now than in the 90's.

May could be anywhere in 5ft 11-6ft range]
Vibram says on 15/Dec/13
Clarkson is 6ft3(190cm). Peak was 6ft3.75. He only just pipped 6ft1 David Cameron for gods sake.
James May is 5ft10.5 (179cm) not 6ft
Richard Hammond is 5ft6 (168cm)
Chareth says on 18/Nov/13
Its very obvious hes close to 6'5. His posture is bad at times.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 14/Oct/13
Clarkson - 195cm/6ft4.75
May - 184cm/6ft0.5
Hammond - 170cm/5ft7
Fatty joe says on 11/Sep/13
He is no taller than 1.90m bare foot and James may is 180cm - 181cm Hammond 169cm
Swede says on 4/Aug/13
Taller then goldblum
miko says on 4/Aug/13
I think he has lost a little bit, he could look a legit 6'6 at times with his hair and skinnier frame back in the 90's, although he wasn't.

I think 6'5 peak is pretty much certain, and through posture and age he's lost a fraction, but who knows what he could actually stretch out to these days.
Yaspaa says on 2/Aug/13
Clarkson is comfortably taller than Reynolds and it's more than 0.5 inches.
Eric Bana is slightly taller than Reynolds. Clarkson has crap posture lesser footwear and is still taller.

Fattyjoe, you need to seriously get your eyes checked. Usain was NOT 2" taller even with the footwear advantage.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/Jul/13
He's lost height already? He's only 53.

The 6ft2-3 claims are insane. But, I think he was always a little below 6ft5, like 195cm and today is still at least a strong 6ft4
francesco says on 4/Jul/13
clarkson almost always wears shoes and has a very low bad posture.
For me as a young man in the morning was 6 '4 3/4'' (195 cm). Now I think 6 '4'' (193 cm) in the morning and 6' 3'' (190.5 cm) in the evening
fatty joe says on 2/Jul/13
Jeremy clarkson is 6ft 2.5 - 6ft 3 peak height 6ft 3 1/2 at a push.He has never been 6ft 5 i would like to point out that al murray 6ft 3 was the same height as clarkson also Ryan reynolds 6ft 2 was 1/2 inch shorter than clarkson and David walliams is 6ft 2.5 - 6ft 3 and was the same height as clarkson.if you look at peter jones 6ft 7 he was atleast 4 inchs taller than clarkson and usain bolt who is 6ft 5 was a good 2 inchs taller than clarkson so the 6ft 2.5 - 6ft 3 is a fairly accurate guess i would say !
ben says on 19/Jun/13
why keep narrowing it down? he's 6' 5'' no doubt about it!
Meggie says on 13/Jun/13
I think that that height is reliable. Jeremy Clarkson Is pretty tall!
Jake wood says on 1/Jun/13
Jeremy clarkson 6ft 4.5 dont make me laugh, atleast Ryan reynolds 6'2 is honest about his height and who is the same height as clarkson.Hammond is 5'6 James May is 5'11 1/2 Clarkson was 6'3 3/4 in his day bare feet and May prob 6ft in his day.People often measure people from their hair who people or have long legs.This is not a correct way to predict height.If somebody measures Clarkson and he is taller than my guess i will apologise but i have guessed heights and been correct 9/10
Yaspaa says on 9/May/13
He was almost as tall as Usain Bolt wearing lesser footwear. The guy is still 6'5, his posture stinks. 6'3 for Clarkson is a very unfunny joke.
Kevin buckles says on 29/Apr/13
I still think clarkson is 6'3 - 6'3 1/2 and maybe with shoes on he could get a weak 6'4 with a heel shoe and a straight back.if james may is 6foot flat or 5'11 3/4 clarkson at best has 3 inchs on him or 3 1/2 - 4 at a push so i think he just looks tall.he was never 6foot 5 in a million years.my friend is 6'5 and he is 6'6 with leather shoes on and often hits his head on a 2metre (6'6) door frame.cant say the same for clarkson really.
Arch Stanton says on 22/Apr/13
Mick Fleetwood is near 6'6" yeah, and Clarkson increasingly looking nearer 6'4". I'm putting in a request for Mick Fleetwood,
Arch Stanton says on 22/Apr/13
He's ageing extremely rapidly. Can't believe he's 12 years younger than my dad, he looks easily as old. Looks nowhere near 6'5" in these pics, his posture is dreadful. He looks 6'2"-6'3" range here!! Click Here
Francesco says on 14/Apr/13
I think that as a young man was really 6.5 or 195.5 in the morning and 6.4 or 193 in the evening. Now I think it is 192 in morning and 189.5 in the evening. Sometimes it seems only 6.2 for wearing shoes and
for bad posture
Jeremy clarksons actual Highet says on 6/Apr/13
Jeremy Clarkson Is most definitely a lot taller than you have thought in the comments. He in fact is 6'5.
Doctor Damage says on 3/Apr/13
There are photos of Clarkson standing next to Eric Bana, which may be another reference. Clarkson was wearing Tod’s loafers for a few years and those have 0.5” of rubber in the heels but are otherwise insubstantial and add almost nothing to one’s height (I have a pair myself). However, more important than actual measurements, I suspect Clarkson looks big in the same way that Hunter S Thompson did. What do I mean? According to things I’ve read, Thompson wasn’t necessarily the tallest man in the room and he was actually rather skinny, but he had a large head, larger-than-life personality, and a strong presence which made him seem like a “big man” even if he didn’t quite measure that big.
Cameron murray says on 28/Mar/13
Before everyone panic's Jeremy clarkson is 6'3 1/2 and mick fleetwood is underestimated at 6'5 he is atleast 6'6 he looked the same height as Peter Jones who is 6'7 multi millionaire from dragons den.look at ryan renolds 6'2 very close to jezzas height and jeff goldblum 6'4 who was close to jezza which would make sence if jezza is 6'3.5.alot of people underestimate and over estimate to make them look good.Clarkson over estimated or rounds up shall we say.Stephen fry is 6'5 in the morning and 6'4.25 in the evening so thats why fry sometimes says 6'4 or 6'5 he is simply being honest.he is a good intelligent man.most people loose up to 2-3cm during the day due to bones in the back.effects taller people more as their back bones are longer.somebody 5'3 arent going to loose barely a 1cm but somebody 6'7 will loose a solid 1inch or 3cm even by night time or end of 16hr day.Remember that
ed bassmaster says on 25/Mar/13
Anyone see Jeff Goldblum from j park who is 6ft 4.25 1.94m next to jeremy clarkson and they were the same height.And jeremy was the fraction taller out of the two people but basically the same height explain that.Jeremy has to be 6ft 4 i would say.maybe 6ft 5 in his early days in the morning but no shoes 6 ft 4.James may is every bit 6ft 0 in the morning as he has been next to people who have been 6ft 2 6ft 3 and been almost the same height give or take a inch or two.richard hammond only looks taller sometimes because he holds his head up high and prob wears shoe lifts and shoes with a 1 1/2 inch or 2 inch heel.Hammond is only just 5ft 7.james may is prob 5ft 11 1/2 during the day or evening though.There is a photo with stephen fry who is 6ft 5 genuine and he has about 5inchs on may no more no less.although i havent seen clarkson stand next to fry that would be a good one due to stephen fry being a genuine 6ft 5 there is a photo with stephen fry at 6ft 5 with the height on the wall like a prison photo with the black board in both hands.
fletchet 182.5 says on 24/Mar/13
Watch TG episode from series 19 with Mick Fleetwood who is 6'5", Clarkson is about 2-3 inches shorter. Given the possible shoe advantage i would say
6'4" peak
6'3.5" most today
6'3" least today

Jack vale says on 24/Mar/13
Also on jeremy clarkson the interview with mick fleetwood who is supposed to be 6ft 5 / 6ft 6 depends who you ask was a solid 2 maybe 3 inchs on jeremy so enless people are over and under estimating their heights i think jeremy is 6ft 3 1/2 no heel. Richard hammond who is 5ft 7 at best does often wear a heel to compete with 6ft 0 james may who wears flat shoes and isnt far of clarkson.
Jack vale pooter farts says on 24/Mar/13
Anyone notice al murray who is 6ft 3 on for the kia ceed laps with amy williams episode,and al murray was within half an inch of jeremy clarkson although i didnt see what shoes he was wearing.also peter jones who is 6ft 7 was significantly taller than jeremy a good 4 inchs if not 5inchs.also james may who is genuine 6ft 0 is only 3inchs maybe 3 1/2 inchs shorter than clarkson.on this basis i would say clarkson is 6ft 3.5 and 6ft 5 in his early 20s

Ken, look at Ryan's shoes: they have a descent heel and give him an extra 2 to 2.5 inches. Clarkson's shoes are nothing more than house slippers, as Trent and I pointed out in previous posts. Ryan Reynolds is a very solid 6'2". Maybe 6'2.5" even. Add 2 or 2.5 inches and you get 6'4" to 6'5" for Ryan Reynolds when he was a guest on Top Gear. Then, if Clarkson doesn't have any heel, he stays the same height at about 6'4.5" to 6'5". That is why Reynolds looks about the same height. Also, Reynolds is young and athletic looking and he has better posture than Jeremy.
Ken says on 28/Jan/13
How come when Ryan Reynolds appeared on the show they were the same height? Ryan is 6'2 according to this website.
ken says on 28/Jan/13
How come ryan reynolds was the same height as clarkson when he came on as a guest?
PLB says on 20/Jan/13
I'm 6'4" or I was until just recently. Most of this controversy about whether Clarkson is 6'4.5" or 6'5" is nonsense. That's less than 1%. We know that people are taller in the morning. They are also taller and shorter from moment to moment depending on how they are standing or moving. This effect is greater the taller you are. On a proper sized man like Clarkson he might inhale deeply and grow a half inch. That wouldn't happen with a solid little guy like Tom Cruise. He spends all his life stretching up as high as possible at every moment. Clarkson just slouches and bends all the time. Most men try to figure out if they are taller or shorter than the man they just met. He doesn't have to worry about it. He's going to be the tallest guy in the room most of the time. Statistically he's deep in the 99th percentile of height.
Trent says on 13/Jan/13
I actually mentioned that a while back Ben. You're completely right. Click Here Look at that pic. They are giving him about as little as one could possibly get from a pair of shoes.
Ben says on 9/Jan/13
Have any of you guys ever seen the shoes that Jeremy wears? They're nothing more than house slippers and they won't give him any extra height, so when you compare him to Usain Bolt and such, keep in mind that they both aren't barefoot, and Jeremy is at the disadvantage. I would have to give the advantage to Bolt because he is very athletic and his spine is a peak height, but Jeremy is in his fifties and has probably lost some height. However, I'd say his peak height was about 6'5". Also, Hammond's head comes up to about Jeremy's shoulder and I am about the same height as Hammond (5'7") and I come up to my mate's shoulder who is about 6'5".
Bigfoot16 says on 31/Dec/12
Hi im from South Africa and YES.... I Love Top Gear... Im 1,98m tall (i think 6vt 5 ) and in SA standards wear a size 16 shoe !!
Arch Stanton says on 14/Dec/12
Bojan says on 25/Oct/12
Watch the episoede with Usain Bolt, and you can see clearly that Jeremy is minimum 2 inches shorter than him.

You need glasses mate. Barely anything in it, Bolt looked as if he edged him out slightly but they were very similar height. LOL if Clarkson was 2 + inches shorter he wouldn't embarrass himself and say "we're the same height".
Arch Stanton says on 11/Nov/12
It looks like 14 inches long in that photo doesn't it LOL!

Rob how long would you estimate his head in the second photo?
[Editor Rob: there's a little bit of distortion in that, maybe adding to his biggish head already.]
Joe says on 10/Nov/12
Im the top end of 6ft 1 and met Jezza once, I was wearing my trainer's which have a 1 1/2 inch tred on them so I was about 6ft 3 1/4 and he had a little bit on me then and he was shoes which are flat on the floor, so I would say top end of 6ft 4 is right, probably lost a bit because of his back so I would say peak at 6ft 5 and a tiny bit.
Trent says on 5/Nov/12
Something to remember about this guy is that he wears shoes with basically no heel whatsoever. Like those hospital slippers almost. I mean, just look at these: Click Here
He's losing probably an inch to most guests, who will wear dress shoes.

So while I'll agree he can look 6'3, you have to do some math for his shoes. So I'd say 6'4 is about right. Possibly a slight drop from peak. Who knows?
miko says on 2/Nov/12
6'3 is absurd for Jeremy. Could be a flat 6'4 today, but 6'3 would really throw a spanner in the works for host of other people, including Usain Bolt.
Arch Stanton says on 1/Nov/12
Hammond is 5'6" ish I think, May has about 6 inches on him, Jeremy has about 10 inches on him.

Me and my Uncle went to Top Gear Live yesterday at the NEC in Birmingham (It was a very good show I must say). We had a great seat in the arena and we could see the trio very clearly. I strongly agree with Bojan's comment, Jeremy is no taller than 6ft 3. There is no way in hell he is 6ft 5 and I must say that James May is between 6ft and 6ft 1. I highly reccommend the show if anyone wants to go next year!

Yes I'd agree on 6-6'1" for James May, he always seems to look 6' anyway but Clarkson is about 4 inches taller, plenty of photos to prove it.
Dragyth says on 29/Oct/12
This guy came into my office, he is every bit 6ft 5". He looked much taller than all of my colleages, and was noticably taller than a 6ft 4" (verified) colleage of mine. Somehow he never looks this tall on the show.

Watch the episoede with Usain Bolt, and you can see clearly that Jeremy is minimum 2 inches shorter than him. Also again, he is just a fraction taller than Ryan Reynolds, and you can see a picture of Ryan and Tim Robbins, and here you have a good 3 inches difference, because Tim is a legit 6 ft 5. So Jeremy is tall, but he is not a giant, solid 6 ft 3, nothing more.
Bojan says on 20/Oct/12
Ben, he can't be 6 ft 5 just because he claims that. He is smaller than everyone who is 6 ft 4, I've watched all episodes. But you have a good logic, I'm 6 ft 1 but from now one I'm 6ft 3, thanks. And Richard Hammond is 5 ft 7,very funny, maybe with 2 in heels.
Joejoe1992 says on 12/Oct/12
I agree with Ben. Im 6ft 1 and Jeremy was a few inches taller than me when I met him, with James being just a tad smaller than me so I say about 6ft
Ben says on 4/Oct/12
Bojan, your heights are totally wrong. Jeremy Clarkson is 6 ft 5. Maybe he's lost a little height due to his age but his spine still has the capability to be 6 ft 5. James May is a full 6 feet. Richard Hammond is most certainly not 5 ft 5. He's 5 ft 7, maybe 5 ft 6.5.
Bojan says on 19/Sep/12
There are plenty of evidence that Jeremy is no more than 6 ft 3. He is the same height as Boris Becker who is 6ft 3, he is just a fraction taller than 6ft 2 Ryan Reynolds and he is smaller than 6ft 4 Stephen Fry. James May is 5ft 11, maybe 6ft. Richard Hammond is 5ft 5, he is smaller than Montoya, and way smaller than Tom Cruise. They are the funniest guys in the world, but height should't have to do anything with it.
BGasami says on 6/Sep/12
I'm 6ft 7 and met Jeremy at a fete recently. I was at least 2.5 inches taller than him. He's no more than 6/4
Arthur says on 29/Aug/12
Jeremy Clarkson is a legit 6ft 4.5"+. He came into my office and was substantially taller than our 6ft 2" director and looked taller still to our 6ft 4" (barefoot) salesman, both verified.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 14/Aug/12
Rob, how tall is James May to you?
Hob says on 6/Aug/12
if richard hammon was 5'6 clarkson is no way over 6'3.5 and not even hes long head held up looking 6'4
kurp 182.5 says on 13/Feb/12
my 'professional' opinion.
J.Clarkson - 6'4" (6'4.5 peak)
J. May - 5'11.5" (6'0 peak)
R. Hammond - 5'6"

Of course it's not really professional, but I think it's a good estimate.
Shaun says on 8/Feb/12
I agree Jake, I think May looks a full 6'.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m- 1.84 m says on 23/Jan/12
183 cm for James May I think.
Andy says on 21/Jan/12
Jeremy is 6'5, in one episode of Top Gear he himself says his height is 6'5
