Selfridges

This iconic department store opened on Oxford Street in 1909 but keeps evolving – you can now enjoy a drink at the in-store bar, named after founder Harry Gordon Selfridge. Canadian billionaire Galen Weston, 72, bought the retailer in 2003 for a reported £600m. Selfridges has just launched an international delivery service, and a drive-through click and collect service will be available at its London store by Christmas.
