Fortnum & mason

Fortnum & Mason is an upmarket department store in Piccadilly. Fortnum's reputation was built on supplying quality food, and saw rapid growth throughout the Victorian era. Though Fortnum's developed into a department store, it continues to focus on stocking a variety of exotic, speciality and also 'basic' provisions.

The store has since opened several other departments, such as the Gentlemen's department on the third floor. It is also the location of a celebrated tea shop and several restaurants.

Fortnum & Mason is famed for its loose-leaf tea and its world-renowned luxury picnic hampers. These hampers – which contain luxury items such as Stilton cheese, champagne, quail eggs and smoked salmon – remain popular today, especially at Christmas time, and can cost from £55 to £1000.
