James Smith & Sons Umbrellas: a British essential
If you plan to visit the British Museum, you must pay a call to the magnificent Victorian store of James Smith & Sons, on the corner of New Oxford Street and Bloomsbury Street. Unchanged for 187 years, this shop sells timelessly classical umbrellas – the perfect British fashion accessory.
More than 150 years of Fish and Chips!
The traditional fillet of fish fried in batter or rolled in breadcrumbs and served with chips probably started in London around 1860. This British fast-food favourite that is as emblematic of the UK as the double-decker bus and the red telephone box and now even has Michelin starred chefs falling for it!
