Fortnum & Mason Tours

Fortnum & Mason
Fortnum & Mason is one of London’s most iconic and best-known department stores. Set on Piccadilly Street, it has been a key local shopping destination since 1707, but it’s also a must-see for visitors who want to peruse luxury goods, enjoy a traditional English afternoon tea, and purchase souvenirs.

The Basics

This bustling department store is the epitome of a high-end London shopping experience. On the roof, look for the mechanical statues of Fortnum & Mason clocks whirring into action as the hour strikes. Inside you can find housewares, perfume, jewelry, and accessories, all with an English flair. The store also features a wine bar, an ice cream parlor, restaurants, and Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon, famous for its high tea service.
 
London shopping and food tours often include a visit to Fortnum's, and hop-on hop-off bus tours also stop nearby. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • This is a must-do London experience for people interested in shopping or people-watching.
  • Make reservations for afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason’s Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon to avoid long queues, particularly on weekends.

How to Get There
Fortnum & Mason is located on Piccadilly Street in the St. James District of downtown London, England. It’s about a 15-minute walk north of Buckingham Palace. You can get there by taking the tube to Green Park or Piccadilly Circus. Parking at the store is limited.

When to Get There
Fortnum's is open daily with shorter hours on Sundays. Visit on a weekday morning to avoid the largest crowds, and stop by during the holiday season to check out the popular Christmas window displays.

About the Famous Hampers
Fortnum & Mason is known for its hampers—wicker baskets used to carry everything from picnic items to gourmet Christmas treats. The store offers a wide array of hampers, priced from modest to mind-blowing. These are filled with desserts, tea, coffee, and more. The most expensive version has made headlines for being filled with a magnum of expensive Champagne and caviar.
Address: 181 Piccadilly, St. James's, London W1A 1ER, England
