Christmas might be over for another year, the new year’s eve hangover just about dealt with, so what better than to indulge in some retail therapy to wash away those January blues. If the horror of boxing day sales, or, shudder, Black Friday’s bonkers bludgeoning last November, then the traditional January sales are for you.

This famous department store, which has been trading in central London for more than 300 years, is just one of a wealth of stores and shops across the capital that will be knocking down their prices from this weekend until the end of the month, so if you are in for a bargain then now is your time! 

When: To Jan 31
Where: Fortnum & Mason,  181 Piccadilly, W1A 1ER
Cost: Free
Tube: Green Park
