  • Loved Fortnum and Mason. Very much focused on tea but their food court and other departments are great. Smaller than Harrods but easier to get around, not as crowded (people and merchandise) and products are presented much better. Everyone we spoke too was helpful and knowledgeable. Architecture and art throughout the 5 floors is stunning. Well worth a visit and look forward to going back.
  • I love Fortnum and Mason and have shopped here for a few years only when I need a little treat. It’s a beautiful grand luxurious store and you will find the finest produce and best quality stuff here. I love Harrods too but Fortnum and Mason tops it for me. Try tea there as well. I haven’t had a proper meal there yet but it’s on my list. Love it
