It was one of the most hotly anticipated openings London had seen in a very long time, and The Shard has lived up to high expectations. Cementing itself as one of, if not the, most luxurious destinations in the city, it makes sense that the exclusive hotel partners with a quintessentially British brand to offer guests not only a 360 degree view, but also an all-round traditional experience. Enter Fortnum and Mason. With a history spanning more than 300 years, the luxury department store is as well known for their rustic food hampers as they are for their famous F&M logo which can now be found on the 72nd floor of London’s tallest building.
The trendy ‘Hamperling’ to-go is filled with a classic afternoon tea selection including classic finger sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, a miniature jar of raspberry jam, and signature Royal Blend tea. But if the typical British weather is too unpredictable for the open-air deck, the same offer is available at the rain-free Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon, at the iconic Fortnum & Mason flagship on Piccadilly.
But hurry, the hamperling is only available until the 8th September
