Staycation Nation

The staycation is here to stay. And if remaining home is the new going away, is there anyone luckier than we Londoners — already set up in the greatest city in the world?

If you’re planning on avoiding the travel hassle this year, make sure to make the most of your break by indulging in everything you’d do as a London tourist (except, of course, standing on the left side of the escalator…)

Start your evening “visit” to the capital with aperitif hour at Ladurée, where, every night between 4pm and 6.30pm throughout July, the brand will be pairing a glass of champagne and rosé wine with one macaron each. While you’re there, check out their incredible new collaboration with Roseblood: including wines, macarons and gift boxes.

Then be sure to take in the Fortnum & Mason summer terrace. Here you’ll find all the wonders and delights of our famous courtyard restaurant out on holiday in the London summer sunshine. Help yourself to champagne, seafood platters and other seasonal delicacies. With this on your front door, why go anywhere else? 

And for those seeking the great outdoors, Fortnum & Mason can supply you with the perfect picnic kits — right down to the hampers and backpack packs to carry them. Explore London’s charming green spaces accompanied, for instance, by the Fortnum’s Cream Tea Selection. Presented in one of the brand’s signature picnic cool bags, it includes Piccadilly Clotted Cream Digestive Biscuits, a Giant Almond Brownie, Afternoon Blend Tea, Mini Scones with both Clotted Cream and Strawberry Preserve, and a bottle of Fortnum’s Brut Reserve Champagne N.V. Bon appetite! And with the school year drawing to a close, don’t forget to spoil your kids’ teachers rotten with this incredible range of Thank You Teacher gifts from the retailer.
