London is one of the most vibrant capital cities in the world and its food scene is second to none. Fantastic restaurants, unique food experiences and the most luxurious brands all flock to London to engage with food loving locals and visitors alike.
If you love chocolate – like we do – there are many great places to buy it so we thought we would take a look at three great foodie havens in the centre of London that we would encourage you to explore:
Harrods Food Hall
It is true that when visiting London there is nothing quite like visiting Harrods, its central location and lux décor throughout makes it known the world over as the exclusive place to shop. Throughout history Harrods has been the byword for style and innovation ensuring that it stocks only the best of the best for its discerning London clientele. Today the food hall in Harrods is not just a purveyor of fine foods for local shoppers but also a tourist destination in its own right where visitors from around the world mingle with Londoners to find everything from a delicious leg of lamb, fresh fruit and vegetables, to the finest caviar.
The stunning surroundings, the delicious food and the exciting buzz in Harrods food hall are three great reasons that make it one of the top places to shop in the world.
Whatever you are looking for in luxury food you will find it there, and our favourite place to be in the food hall is of course the chocolate section where Bonieri’s luxury chocolates in their beautiful boxes can be found front and centre just waiting to be taken home for a special occasion or just a little treat!
Selfridges Food Hall
Selfridges on Oxford Street has to be one of the world’s best known department stores, with over ten acres of shopping space over six floors this is a shopper’s paradise in the centre of London.
A ground floor ‘Wonder Room’ has been created to showcase the most luxurious high-end products including sunglasses and jewellery. In line with this exclusive feel Selfridges Food Hall stocks a wide variety of interesting delicious products from around the UK and across the globe. Famed for its quality and choice of products available Selfridges Food Hall blends small suppliers, hard to find delicacies and specialist counters to create a truly unique shopping experience.
London’s food markets and specialist food fairs are the most diverse and vibrant in the world and they are located in varying sizes and styles across the capital. The great thing about markets is the atmosphere and the fact that you can get up and personal with the person selling the products, ask questions and find out more about the story behind the food which is always interesting. Our personal favourite... Borough Market at London Bridge.
If you are visiting London then be sure to take a wander around the foodie favourites listed above and remember that Bonieri’s luxury Italian chocolates are stocked in both Harrods and Selfridges! If you can’t make it to London you can buy them online from bonieri.com.
