The VM team have worked their magic on these floors by creating retail theatre to capture this important time for retailers.
Fortnum’s legacy began in 1705 by Hugh Mason, from a small store in St James Market and a spare room in his house, and the Fortnum family who had arrived in London as high-class builders reinvigorating Mayfair in the wake of the Great Fire. William Fortnum, who was quite the entrepreneur, also took a boost as Footman in Queen Anne’s Household and in Mr Mason’s spare room, where Fortum met Mason.
In London, Fortnum’s remains a quintessential English store with a global palate of food lovers. So a visit to London would not be complete without spending a few hours in this delicious store!
