Fortnum and Mason/The quintessentially English store in the heart of Piccadilly

The moment I walked into Fortnum & Mason, I felt like I was in heaven. I love their signature green color. I love all the nice little boxes and tins and jars. Fortnum and Mason is honestly one of those places I can spend hours in and be completely happy and content.It's like a Tiffany for for teas, chocolates, jams, cheese and cookies.
The Fortnum and Mason hampers have been a tradition since Victorian times when they were sold as picnics for visitors to the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park.
 If you're lucky, you'll see the horse drawn F&M carriage making deliveries to the upper class. Really worth a visit.
