Quintessentially English shopping
Known as a full-service department store since 1707, Fortnum & Mason remains as vital a tourist destination as Harrods, though its proportions are quaint by comparison. Gift opportunities abound in the ground-floor and basement food halls, which include pretty tins of teas and biscuits, a fantasy-like sweets counter and a chocolate counter that includes Audrey's famous creams [including the signature and very English dark-chocolate violet creams]. The store also includes fashions, toiletries, jewellry, stationery etc., restaurant and tea room, and a neo-retro ice cream parlor up on the first floor [US = second floor]. Fortnum's is a bit too establishment for some tastes, but its status as a London landmark is undeniable.
