Christmas Shopping on the Village In Piccadilly Tour

DC Editor Adam writes…

I'm out-and-about leading the Village In Piccadilly Tour with London Walks this Monday 10th December. 

Of all the tours I lead for London Walks, this is the one with the very best Christmas shopping options. To whet your appetite, here are just TWO of the many lovely shops I'll be pointing out along the way…

Harvie & Hudson Shirtmaker

Harvie and Hudson is the only remaining company still in sole ownership of the original families in the bespoke shirtmaking trade in Jermyn Street, London. Thomas George Harvie and George Frederick Hudson set up the business in 1949.

In the 1960s H&H revolutionsed Jermyn Street by branching out into vibrant colours and introducing their signature bold stripe.

And they are still going strong!

I always look forward to a trip to Harvie and Hudson, where I buy my waistcoats and I'm delighted to see they've started a nice line in snuff handkerchiefs, not so easy to acquire these days with the near extinction of the old school tobacconist.

Find Harvie & Hudson here…

Prestat Chocolates

Prestat's chocolate shop was founded in 1902 and was Roald Dahl's favourite. And he should know a thing or two about chocolate!

Here's a short preview for the tour…

Join me for A Village In Piccadilly Monday 10th December 2.30pm meeting at Piccadilly Circus tube (by Eros). The tour costs £10/£8 pay on the day or book now via Pay-A-Tour

Keep In Touch…
