This year there's even more to see and do, with an unrivalled collection of over 825 independent boutiques and designer-makers. Expertly created for you, we present our widest ever collection of beautiful and exquisite gifts and treats, all hand-picked by our expert team and approved by House & Garden for their style, design and elegance.
We've introduced a dedicated Designers Gallery with The Princes Trust, a bigger and better Food Hall – AND in response to your feedback a new Food Court giving you even more catering options! Plus a brand new layout and fresh new look.
You’ll find us in the Great Taste area on the lower ground floor. Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for speciality food and drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. Quite simply the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer.
