Established in 1705, this wonderful store has been on Piccadilly since 1756, and the store staff still wear tailcoats

There is a clock above the entrance to the store. The two founders of Fortnum and Mason are represented by the figures beside the clock who come out and bow to each other on the hour.

Mr Fortnum wears the red coat that indicates he was a footman in the Royal Household. He went into partnership with Mr Mason, a grocer.

You can visit Fortnum and Mason on the royal walk, the shopping walk and the self guided bus tour.
