Shopping at London's Oldest Department Store

Jun 6, 2022 3:45:00 PM / by Jazz Ward

Jazz and her roommates make their way to one of London's historic shopping institutions, Fortnum & Mason, for a fun experience. The department store, also one of Europe's oldest department stores, was founded in 1707 and has been around ever since!

It was a beautiful sunny day today and my roommates and I explored Green Park and Fortnum & Mason! Fortnum & Mason is one of London’s oldest department stores and it has five floors of beautiful products: food, tea, beauty products, and their iconic hampers. The hampers are wicker picnic baskets that can be shipped worldwide and customized to your preferences: tea, biscuits, jams, and more. Truly an amazing spot to spend the day, afternoon tea, or shopping for gifts!


Thanks, Jazz!
