The Best of British luxury is waiting at Burberry’s flagship store on the fashionable Regent Street in London’s West End. Baroque Lifestyle found out all about it
If you’re visiting London this summer, make sure to take time out to enjoy one of the city’s highlights, an opportunity to soak up British tradition and luxury in an ideal setting. Burberry’s flagship London store, located at number 121 Regent Street, which is also the brand’s largest store in the world, has just been extended and now includes a specialty gift department as well as an all-day café where you can enjoy traditional British fare including a sumptuous afternoon tea.
So if you’re looking for a gift to take home with you for somebody special, or even for yourself, the gift section at Burberry is the ideal spot. It’s a veritable treasure trove that is, naturally, updated every season along with the fashion and accessories on offer. The luxury label also offers a range of products that don’t change with the seasons, including travel items with the traditional Burberry style, such as luggage tags and passport covers, stationery and stunning homeware, including soft furnishings, games such as playing cards, backgammon and dominoes and candles.
You can have each gift personalized by Burberry craftsmen in the store, who will embroider or emboss the item (if it’s leather) for you before gift wrapping it with panache. Personalized gift cards can be created while you wait on Burberry’s special paper embossing machines in the store, ensuring that the gift is tailor made to suit your requirements.
And while you’re waiting for your purchases to be personalized, why not spend some time at Thomas’s Café, Burberry’s first in-store restaurant? The café is housed in a brand new two-story building where the gifting area is located.
The menu includes a range of delicious seasonal dishes, all freshly made using products from suppliers and producers throughout Britain. Aside from an expansive and lavish Afternoon Tea, which includes finger sandwiches, English cakes and biscuits not to mention a Darjeeling tea and champagne, you can have simpler fare such as a York ham and cheddar sandwich, or go all out with lobster and chips. Buttered crumpets, clotted cream and other British delights are all on the menu, making a trip to the restaurant a dream.
