    Fortnum and Masons claim to have invented the Scotch egg here in 1738, for the picnic hampers of lords and ladies heading out of London by coach along Piccadilly.

    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.

    Elegant and edible, this gingerbread house will make for quite the table centrepiece, £35.

    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

    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

    My favourite place to pick up a luxury hamper - whether to give us a gift, or as the perfect picnic accessory

    Afternoon tea on the 4 th floor is fantastic

    Richard H. · March 25, 2010

    On Sundays they open for browsing at 11:30am, though you can’t make any purchases until noon. Its well-stocked grocery counters and its luscious hampers remain its staple. Read more · October 26, 2011

    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.

    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!

    Chantel S. · July 18, 2013
  • Richard T.

    One if the best men's accessories selections in the world - but coffees are lacking!

    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.

    The ultimate gift emporium, Fortnum & Mason is famous for its hampers stocked with festive such as pink champagne truffles. A horse-drawn carriage makes special local deliveries.

    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

    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 :)

    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

    Go to the grocery store downstairs - a great cheese counter, and lots of hard-to-find products like Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding

    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

    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)!
