    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!

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    Awesome place for coffee and tea fanatics! All kinds of biscuits and sweets, a grocery shop downstairs, and an overall chill department store. Ground floor restaurant has great food!

    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)!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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 8040http://www.fortnumandmason.com/ Read more

    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. :)

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    Love wandering around this place. Perfect place to pick up a small gift - chocolates, teas, fresh coffee! Can't afford too much else though.
  • Steph C.
    On point tea set with a choice of savoury dish instead sandwiches which I much prefer. Scones were up to standard. Nom!

    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 :)

    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.

    Some great coffees, and knowledgeable staff. Also nice for British souvenirs and tea ware.

    One of the best places for afternoon tea on the fourth floor. It's best to make a reservation beforehand.

    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

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    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.

    Just wow. Amazing shop, great special gifts. Go for a treat, everyday would take away the loveliness of this place. Beautifully stunning at Christmas time.

    Do yourself a favor and go to their cafe upstairs for some tea and a snack. It's incredible. Amazing service. And delicious.

    Great service as always, breakfast, lunch or dinner is delicious. You should visit their store to buy some cheese, jam and chocolate.
  • Arianna B.
    The tea selection was good, but the place in itself is totally worth visiting. Check upper floors - the merchandise selection is unique!

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