This Funzing Experience:
This is a walking tour that reveals fascinating stories about some of the West End’s major stores and the characters behind them.

Hear some true stories of Mr Selfridge, as opposed to what the TV series showed you. For example, hear about a bet between Harry Gordon Selfridge and Harrods in 1917 and what the loser had to do.

Find out why the first John Lewis was not a great employer and might not have approved of what happened to his company. We will see the building which housed the very first store with the name Debenhams. We learn about Liberty’s unexpected connection to the British Navy and why a Marks and Spencer's store is named after a building in ancient Rome.

Plus, on the way, hear about some stores which sadly are no longer with us. A unique and interesting tour for anyone who loves a bit of shopping! Read Less
