    Make sure to make a visit to the "Diamond High Tea", here on the 4th floor of Fortnum & Mason. The sandwiches, scones, & bite size pastries, were all to die for, followed down by a cup tea of choice!

    A great place to get that Christmas spirit. Nothing beats the ambiance of this mall. The teas on ground level, the very sophisticated gentleman store on top next to the Christmas decoration department

    If it's good enough for the Queen! Buy some Biltong it's fresh like its from South Africa. The wine and whiskey shop has a great and exotic selection or vintage wines and limited old whiskeys

    Athmosphere, cafe 1st floor: tea will be re-served with hot water, soup, butter squash salad, bakery, macarons!! <3 sadly the waitress' behaviour can differ a lot good luck we had the nice one

    Great service and love the offer of 3 different set of afternoon teas: sweet tea, refular, and savoury, all for £44. This is more of a touristic "been here done that" kind of afternoon tea.

    Fortnum's set-piece hampers are English classics but it's with the twists on essentials where the Queen's Grocers really excel. Try their black sugar or the sublime Bordeaux butter with smoked salt. Read more

    Fantastic! Amazing selection of tea, home goods, clothing, and everything imaginable in a beautiful building. A quick walk from Piccadilly Circus and well worth a visit.

    The cocktail list is well thought out. It is inspired by the 18th Century “Cabinets of Curiosities” & pays tribute to Jerry Thomas, one of the true greats of cocktail making, with a list of his favs. Read more

    An excellent place to have afternoon tea for a special occasion. Fancy dining and excellent service. The staff are amazing. Brilliant shopping section with so much to see! Well worth a visit!

    Debbie Haines · September 24, 2014
  • noenotiene

    what not many people tells you: apart from a great selection of teas it has the same kind of gourmet products that Harrods, even in a wider variety, in a much more friendly and less crowded place

    noenotiene · October 20, 2013
  • Susan H.

    This is THE place for high tea. The food is delicious and portions are plentiful. The staff treats you like royalty without pretense. I'll definitely be back.

    Don’t be overwhelmed by all the deliciousness on the ground floor, because Fortnum & Mason has more to offer! Check out their amazing cookery section (1st floor) and perfumery area (2nd floor)!

  • Richard J.

    Head up to the top floor (Diamond Jubilee Tea Room) for afternoon tea. You can make your reservation at OpenTable. Don't rush. Give yourself 2-3h.

    Richard Jhang · January 28, 2015
  • Bianca N.

    Absolutely beautiful. The chocolate eclairs were better than the ones I had in Paris. Also, the new french pudding is to die for. I must come back again to try the tea and scones.

    Bianca Ng · March 4, 2015

    The "Royal" shopping centre. Here u will find all the official deli food, tea, wine suppliers of the royal family & palace. Too expensive. Just visit for a quick look as an attraction.

    George X · August 9, 2015
  • Sara F.

    The best for an authentic British Afternoon Tea - perfect finger sandwiches, beautiful cakes & scones, wide range of teas. They replenish everything as often as you want, for no extra charge.

    Sara Feldmann Brummer · November 19, 2012
  • Joanie F.

    The classiest, most I-could-get-lost-in-here stores in the world. Every detail is perfected in this department store -- beats Harrods by a mile. Has great coffee and tea selection.

    Although a nice meal is great, this is the place for tea & scones at 5pm. Don't forget to buy some delicatessen products afterwards.+44 (0) 20 7734 8040 Read more

    At the Fountain bar. Tea and cake for me and tea and scones for my partner, it is expensive but great quality so you feel like royalty. Choc cake was very yummy. Tea was delish.

    Very classy traditional department store, good for shopping for house's branded food gifts: tea, biscuits, chocolates. Nice stationary selection.

    Anna Kaminova · December 16, 2014

    Great British tea!! It's such a Wonderful store! There are great restaurants, quality food and also you can find special presents to buy! I loved the honey selection!

    Julia Misk · March 19, 2015

    There is no way to produce foie gras humanely. To force-feed birds until their livers swell to up to 10 times their normal size is morally repugnant.

    The place to have afternoon tea in town, especially with your mother. Great experience. There are also five fine floors to experience fine shopping. A lovely experience.

    At the tea restaurant on the 4th floor they judge you and if they find you wanting they park you on the couches until you leave of your own accord rather than seating you.

    Jared Zimmerman · August 5, 2014
  • Andrew Z.

    The restaurant at the back of Fortnums is a secret gem and the Knickerbocker Glory has been a speciality that has delighted kids of all ages for the last 50 years

    Favorite specialty retailer in London. Great for little gifts and gourmet snacks. Stop in and try their high tea.

    Alyssa · December 22, 2015
  • Betony K.

    Lots of people never go beyond the food court and the jewellery gallery upstairs is worth a look. And they'll serve you a cocktail while you browse.

    Betony Kelly · November 29, 2014
  • Samuel C.

    Afternoon tea is delish, but the best thing is the savoury selection and specially the "eat as much as you can" approach. Pretty relax and enjoyable.

    Samuel Campos · January 19
  • Kris C.

    Check out the food halls. Much more English in feel then Harrods. Their jams and teas are second to none. Try the Strawberry-Rose they have out in the summer.

    Kris Covo · May 24, 2010
  • Giggle G.

    A place to go for some Britishness. Although they also have some selection of Frenchness I.e foie gras and French eclair. Buggy friendly too!

    Giggle Giggly · January 29

    Look above the entrance to the famously exclusive department store, because on the hour every hour, Messrs Fortnum and Mason themselves emerge to greet each other.

    Darjeeling broken orange pekoe tea will change ur cafe or buy a box. Ice-cream is not the best in London despite the critics recommendations

    Sofia Bak · July 18, 2011
  • Lauren R.

    You could spend hours just looking at the wall of jam on the main floor, but head upstairs to discover unique bath, kitchen, tea, and garden accessories.

    Lauren Rubin Tiley · February 15, 2012
  • Martin J.

    English / France style packed and served in form of sweets, delicates, fashion and so. Btw, this is the place to shop a socks. :) Stay for cup of tea or glass of wine. :)

    Martin Jarčík · October 23, 2013
  • Atif U.

    You have to check out the forth floor. You will thank to me esp. the notes on paper stoppers. e.g. If you want a good relationship buy a horse :)

    Scotch eggs were delicious and the lady serving said they will be doing ostritch scotch eggs for easter, definately not to be missed, will be coming back for that.

    Visit their convenient and friendly beauty center, Beauty a La Carte, offering one of the widest ranging service menus we encountered in London. Read more · October 26, 2011

    The tea selection was good, but the place in itself is totally worth visiting. Check upper floors - the merchandise selection is unique!

    Went to the first floor tea room for a coffee and crumpet. Amazing. Tasty cappuccino. Pricey but classy.

    Sunny Пател · December 21, 2014

    The best scone you can possibly have in town. Incredible interior from old time. The best cream tea !

    Leven Wenqi Li · October 11, 2014
  • Paul D.

    Great for their food hall and some of the best tea and coffee in London. Quieter than Harrods to look around the upper floors.

    Paul Driver · October 7, 2014
  • Andrea M.

    This place is amazing, you can find a selection of the best European food. A visit to London is not complete if you don't visit it.

    Andrea Monni · December 26, 2014
  • Kit&kafoodle

    My favourite department store in London! Extravagant and expensive but great to window shop. Best food hall out of Harrods & Selfridges.

    Kit&kafoodle · October 28, 2014
  • Louis Vuitton

    For a treasure trove of festive delights, head to Fortnum & Mason where hampers come packaged in signature F&M-stamped wicker baskets, and for special orders, come delivered on a horse drawn carriage.

    Louis Vuitton · December 15, 2010
  • Chris P.

    Excellent teas. Do not waste your money on the coffee. Sales rarely offer any significant bargains.

    Chris Phillips · January 2, 2015

    My fav luxury retail store in London. Get yourself a box of Smoky Earl Grey tea, a great treat during winter afternoons.

    Franz Vitulli · March 4
  • Muberra

    Great service as always, breakfast, lunch or dinner is delicious. You should visit their store to buy some cheese, jam and chocolate.

    Muberra · November 3, 2013

    Very neat place to feel the traditional way for english passion for tea! Must see at least once while in London
