To be observed all in a row at the backside of St James avenue are Berry Brothers & Rudd, Britain’s oldest wine and spirit merchant, Lock & Co the famend hat keep and the bespoke shoemaker John Lobb. Additional up, take in the historic D.R. Harris apothecary before heading alongside Jermyn avenue for Floris, the oldest English retailer of perfume and toiletries and Paxton & Whitfield, the oldest cheesemaker in England. Nip over to Cordings on Piccadilly for common his and hers countryside garb and back by way of Charbonnel et Walker to decide upon up some luxury hand-made goodies earlier than a browse in Hatchards, London’s oldest book place and in the end have a meander around the fantastically dressed department retailer, Fortnum & Mason.
