About Fortnum & Mason

Founded on the same site in 1707, Fortnum Mason is a unique and beautiful store. Fortnum’s is renowned as purveyors of fine foods, hampers, teas and wine. It has five restaurants, from an award-winning wine bar to the wonderful ice cream parlour.

Food may be first at Fortnum’s, but lift your eyes to the spectacular atrium, and let your feet (or the lifts!) lead to the delights aloft. From the serious fun of the Cookshop to the tranquil femininity of the second floor and the leathery comfort of Men’s Accessories, Fortnum’s is a theatrical oasis in the middle of Mayfair.
