Iconic London Shops

While Harrod's may be considered a 'must see' shopping destination, there are two other iconic flagship shops in London:

Fortnum & Mason Founded in 1707, Fortnum & Mason located in Piccadilly is considered to be London's oldest department store. Fortnum's signature, luxury picnic hampers, which made their debut in Victorian times at Royal Ascot and Henley Regatta, are still popular today. The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon opened by HM The Queen is the perfect place to have a traditional afternoon tea and enjoy Fortnum's famous loose-leaf tea. Even if you are not a shopper, the colorful, creative window displays located throughout the store and stairwells are worth stopping in for.

Liberty London  It is hard to miss the Tudor revival building resembling a large home located on Regent Street. Indeed off the three large atriums, there are smaller 'rooms' (some even with fireplaces) that makes it feels as though you are wandering through someone's home. Since 1875, Liberty has been best-known for its in-house collection of print fabrics. Today, Liberty continues to collaborate with designers and has expanded its eclectic offerings beyond fashion to include cosmetics, home decor and jewellery*.
