Experience a dose of surrealism as you shop at Dover Street Market. Founded by the designer of Comme des Garçons, Rei Kawakubo, this marketplace features unique installations that blur the lines between fashion and art from designer brands such as The Row, Gucci and Simone Rocha.

Step back in time at Fortnum & Mason, a bastion of British tradition. From the uniformed staff to the elegant tea room, this department store is full of old-time charm.

Enter foodie heaven in the food hall stocked with fine tea leaves, delicious patisserie and the famous scotch eggs that were invented by Mr Fortnum in 1738.


Spend hours exploring the nooks and crannies of Liberty London. This department store in the West End is instantly recognisable with the Union Jack flag flying over the mock-Tudor exterior.

Inside, find skincare products exclusive to Liberty, exquisite pieces of jewellery and the famous Liberty fabric in the haberdashery department.
