Fortnum and Mason is one of my favourite shops in London. It is all about British Heritage. The experience starts outside; the window display is amazing. This month, have a look at the ‘looking glass’, just like ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Once you access the ‘wonderland’, discover the ground floor and do not miss the cool tin boxes of biscuits and flavoured teas. Heaven for children and grown-ups.
The authentic British afternoon tea is home in the basement tea room. I personally like the freshly baked scones served with clotted cream and a cup of Lapsang Souchong tea; slightly smoked to contrast the sweet of the scones.
If you are late, just visit the Wine Bar in the lower floor and ask for a glass of rosé wine and a plate of Welsh Rarebits. Simply delicious!
