Fortnum & Mason is an upmarket department store in Piccadilly, London, with additional stores at St Pancras railway station and Heathrow Airport in London, as well as Dubai and various stockists worldwide. Its headquarters is located at 181 Piccadilly, where it was established in 1707 by William Fortnum and Hugh Mason. Today it is privately owned by Wittington Investments Ltd.Founded as a grocery store, Fortnum's reputation was built on supplying quality food, and saw rapid growth throughout the Victorian era. Though Fortnum's developed into a department store, it continues to focus on stocking a variety of exotic, speciality and also 'basic' provisions.The store has since opened several other departments, such as the Gentlemen's department on the third floor. It is also the location of a celebrated tea shop and several restaurants.HistoryWilliam Fortnum was a footman in the royal household of Queen Anne. The Royal Family’s insistence on having new candles every night meant a lot of half-used wax which William Fortnum promptly resold for a tidy profit. The enterprising William Fortnum also had a sideline business as a grocer. He convinced his landlord, Hugh Mason, to be his associate, and they founded the first Fortnum & Mason store in Mason's small shop in St James's Market in 1707. In 1761, William Fortnum's grandson Charles went into the service of Queen Charlotte and the Royal Court affiliation led to an increase in business. Fortnum & Mason claims to have invented the Scotch egg in 1738. The store began to stock speciality items, namely ready-to-eat luxury meals such as fresh poultry or game served in aspic jelly.

This flagship store is set over seven floors, with more than 50,000 toys on sale. It is considered one of the city's prominent tourist attractions, receiving around five million visitors each year. The chain has ten other outlets in the United Kingdom and nearly 50 franchises worldwide.Hamleys was bought by the Icelandic investment company Baugur Group in 2003 but was taken over by Baugur's main investor, Landsbanki, when the group defaulted. In 2012, the French toy retailer Groupe Ludendo bought the business for £60 million. In 2015 it was reported that Groupe Ludendo was negotiating the sale of Hamleys, possibly to a Hong Kong company owned by a relative of the owner of department store House of Fraser. Subsequently, it was sold to the Chinese footwear company C.banner for an estimated $154 million.HistoryHamleys is the oldest and largest toy shop in the world.

Families of the Fallen Distance: 1.4 miTourist Information 2 Eaton Gate London, United Kingdom SW1W 9BJ
While there are a number of other charities carrying out good work in this area, Families Of The Fallen is the only charity focused exclusively on providing funds for the families of those killed in the field of action in recent and current conflicts. To keep administration costs to an absolute minimum, we are entrusting the actual distribution of the money we raise to existing charities – with a strong emphasis on the individual regimental charities that are particularly close to each family’s needs, and who are supporting us in this mission to raise extra funds. We are also working closely with other charities across all three services, including The Soldiers’ Charity and the Royal British Legion.
We all agree that the money currently available is nowhere near enough to address properly all the needs, which can vary greatly from family to family. We want to make sure those families are really comfortably housed when they have to leave military accommodation – and to fund any extra help needed for the education of their children.
Families of The Fallen will place special emphasis on the really fast distribution of money to families who have just been bereaved, making sure that their time of deepest grief is not compounded by financial worries.
