Fortnum and Mason - the Queen's corner shop. We all know about glace cherries that come in Christmas cakes don't we?? But did you know that in F&M you can buy just about ANY fruit glaced?? I couldn't believe my eyes - or maybe I just don't get out much - but they had glaced oranges, pineapples, some kind of cactus fruit oh and all kinds of things.... amazing.

Anyway... anything you have NEVER eaten will be on sale here... for a price. It's not cheap so only come here for one or two VERY special things.

What to buy: They also sell the most faaaaabulous selection of chocolates.... you can buy them loose and they put them in the box you choose, ie 100g, 250g, 500g etc... ?25 for the 500g and ?13.50 for the 250g.

What to pay: Lots and lots and lots
