From a small grocery store in Piccadilly in 1707, has grown a celebrated store with an international reputation for the exclusivity and quality of the products it sells. Fortnum's Food Hall is an irresistible display of gourmet pleasures, from chocolates and biscuits to smoked salmon and Stilton, vintage marmalade and seasonal produce. Passionate about provenance, we are proud to recommend every jar, spoonful and slice for our hungry customers.

Iconic British institution, luxury shopping, tourist trap - Fortnum's is all of these things and more. A taste of old style retail aimed almost exclusively at the tourist market. The tea department is probably the highlight, but the sweets and cakes area is also special,...More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

Definately yes. There is a tea area/cafe on the ground floor but for the 4th floor where we went you must book. Uniquely Fortnum's call you 48 hours before to check you are still coming! Hope you found this useful.
