From a small grocery store in Piccadilly in 1707, has grown a celebrated store with an international reputation for the exclusivity and quality of the products it sells.

Fortnum's Food Hall is an irresistible display of gourmet pleasures, from chocolates and biscuits to smoked salmon and Stilton, vintage marmalade and seasonal produce. Passionate about provenance, we are proud to recommend every jar, spoonful and slice for our hungry customers.

Enjoyed a hour or so browsing round A classic English department store. Even the mens department is interesting and manly! The hampers and food to go in them was interesting to look at but rather too expensive for me.

Like a kid in a candy shop, this American/Canadian loved the tea shop, the ice cream parlour, and the hampers.

Afternoon tea for my wife's birthday and it just could not have been better. You sense the experience is going to be good when you walk into the Silver Jubilee Tea Room on the 4th floor and can hear the grand piano being played, are welcomed most warmly by the reception team and shown to your table. Then you get... More

They had some fun unique gift items here! I spent about an hour walking around enjoying everything while my dad was getting cigars down the street. I didn't end up buying much because a lot of way overpriced and made in China. But the little cafe was pretty cute and good! OK service though...

On a recent visit sightseeing in the area, I decided to pop in F & M for a look round and had my breath taken away by this famous establishment!! Whilst not cheap, this shop just oozes class and history and made me feel so proud to be British!! For the record, I didn't have tea but purchased a superb... More

We've had Afternoon Tea at several places during our previous trips to London. Fortum & Mason tops them all, although Herrod's comes in a close second. The Coronation chicken and the eclairs were scrumptious! My daughter had the vegetarian tea and returned again with friends to have it. The room & china set the stage for a memorable Tea event.

We came at 3pm and were shown straight to our table. The Jubilee Tea Salon is as grandiose and serene as you'd expect it to be and best of all, is that the tables aren't all crammed in as can happen, so you've acres of space and aren't forced to eavesdrop on your neighbours! We had the champagne afternoon tea... More

Fortnum & Mason are a must visit for me each trip to pick up my favourite teas. Their selection is amazing. We never fail to pick up some Scotch Eggs for our picknick snack. They are food experts and we always wish we lived in London to try all their delicacies. Check out their wines and spirits!

This is a great store to visit if you are up in London. Very tastefully decorated & each floor laid out well. We bought a few items such a tea, chutneys etc, but things in the store we felt were a little expensive. Staff very friendly & helpful. Definitely a must to visi & would visit again when up in...

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
