The #London #Christmas Shopping Guide 2017: Fortnum & Mason

DC Editor Adam writes…

It's the annual Daily Constitutional Christmas Shopping Guide!

Every year the London Walks guides round-up their fave shops and stalls along (or near) the routes of their London Walks tours. Ruth can often be found leading the London of Oscar Wilde walk and here's her tip…





Ruth writes…



I would recommend if walkers come on my Oscar Wilde walk that they pop into Fortnum Mason's magnificent food hall which we pass en route.

Always magically festive with wonderful window displays and elegant offerings inside.  If you can't afford a hamper, they do beautiful little festive tins of tea, coffee and biscuits so something for all budgets, from Selfish Giants to Happy Princes!




DC Editor Adam adds…

Thanks Ruth – yes the window of F&M is an event in itself. My favourite detail from last year's display was the HUGE Brussels Sprout…


… and the little mouse suffering its, er, ill-effects!
