Department stores Tips (91)

Fortnum & Mason

This was the first time I've seen truffles. I've heard how expensive they are, but still, my goodness!

Love the elegant ambience of the store. Look out for the murals and pictures. It's a nice place for window shopping if you can't afford to spend much.

What to buy This place started off as a grocery shop, check out the Food Hall. :)

Liberty: Dept. Store in a Faux-Tudor Building


Liberty - Department Store

I was mostly attracted by its Tudor house and its exquisity interior (those wood carving relics, panels, the 'square' spiral-stairways.

More photos in travelogue, details later

What to buy Anything you need. But its Oriental Department and original women's fashions are interesting. So as its needle work design/product/supply on the 5th floor.

Oxford Street: Oxford Street

I wasn't sure whether to include this in the 'Shopping' or 'Tourist Traps' section. Oxford Street is the longest and probably best known shopping area in London. It covers 4 stops on the Central Line.
There are huge department stores and a vast number of shops that seem to have perennial closing down sales.
At Christmas the shop and street decorations are very festive. It gets so crowded though that at times it is impossible to move. Because of the crowds and the high proportion of foreign tourists it is a popular spot for pickpockets so beware.

Liberty: Liberty

Liberty is a beautiful shop. It sells nice, expensive things - if you like (and can afford) nice expensive things. Whenever I go in I normally look more at the building than the items for sale. The wooden carved walls and staircases are really lovely. The place has lots of character.

What to buy Whatever takes your fancy.

Fortnum and Mason: The Queen's grocers

The Royal Crests and 'By Appointment to ....' statements outside the store indicate that Fortnum and Mason supply goods to the Royal family, including the Queen.
Inside are all manner of food and drink goodies. If you are looking for small gifts to take back this would be a good place to look.
There are also 3 restaurants inside catering to different tastes and budgets.

What to buy Tea, coffee, chocolates maybe for gifts. Whatever takes your fancy.

What to pay More expensive than buying the same things elsewhere.

HARROD'S of course: Sticking to a Budget (hee hee)

over the top

What to buy You should tell yourself, "I may never be here again", and buy as much as you dare. You want to be able to say for many years, and to many people, " I bought it in London." (casually spoken)

What to pay Use your credit card and FUHGETABOUTIT!
