Hg2 : The Hedonist

Fortnum & Mason

Established in 1707, Fortnum & Mason is the grandmama of London’s department stores. Beyond its eau-de-nil frontage is a taste of genteel, olde-worlde England (and now with a sympathetic David Collins facelift). With a clutch of royal warrants, the Queen’s grocer sells tasty comestibles – handmade chocolates, British cheeses, fine teas and coffees, charcuterie etc – at right royal prices. Escape the tourist stampede by buying one of Fortnum’s signature hampers or by retreating to the sleepy upper floors selling women’s accessories, lingerie, perfume and homeware: granny would approve.

There is a quintessentially English tea room and restaurant serving delightful cakes and genteel sandwiches. While Fortnums has a touristy feel, it is actually incredibly well respected for its impeccably sourced produce and range of goods.
