Fortnum and Mason

Certain shops have become institutions, and the upmarket grocers, Fortnum and Mason, is one of them. Established in 1707, Fortnums is seen as being quintessentially English in a similar way that the illustrations to Alice in Wonderland are.
 
Perhaps surprisingly, it isn’t just a novelty shop for tourists - a lot of well off Londoners still use the store for regular food and wine shopping, although sale of gifts and hampers do make up a large chunk of their income.
 
As you would expect, the food here is presented very appealingly, especially in the main Food Hall. Although it isn’t cheap people are prepared to pay for the quality, the choice, the brand and the experience. There are also three different restaurants in the store – afternoon tea is very popular.
