The Fortnum & Mason store is situated halfway up London’s Piccadilly.

It was founded by William Fortnum and Hugh Mason in 1707, and started out as a simple grocery store. It immediately appealed to the upper classes due to its stock of high quality goods, and was soon supplying the officers of the army and by the 19th-century was a firm favourite of the Queen.

William was an ex-employee of Queen Anne’s household, and used his knowledge of royalty to deliver products that the bourgeois would buy.

Restaurant, hampers and afternoon tea

Fortnum’s has remained true to its roots, and still maintains the wood-panelling and crystal chandeliers of a bygone era. It also has a dress uniform of morning coats for staff.

Don’t miss the food emporium, which sells every kind of delicacy from tea, coffee, ham and pâtés, to fifty types of marmalade. It also has three restaurants, including the Fountain and Salmon and Champagne Bar.

A clock outside chimes upon the hour, and model Misters Fortnum and Mason come out and take a bow.
