Join actress and award-winning guide Karen Pierce-Goulding on this Virtual London Shopping Tour to celebrate the re-opening of some of London’s most cherished department stores after lockdown…with such a wonderful selection, which one would you pick.?
Maybe Selfridges would be top of your list with its beguiling canary yellow tote bags or, for those who love a bit of old-fashioned charm, perhaps Libertys ? Foodies might make a beeline for fabulous Fortnum and Mason or for the young at heart it would have to be Hamleys Toy Shop. …
But as well as being packed with retail delights there are fascinating stories behind the facades of these famous shops. This tour delves into their rich retail history. You’ll see your favourite London department store with a fresh eye or even find a new one to explore!
