#London Christmas Shopping No.12: Martyn of #MuswellHill @W_Martyn

Daily Constitutional editor Adam Scott-Goulding writes…

It's back! The annual London Christmas Shopping Guide from The Daily Constitutional!



This year I'll be including museum gift shops and markets for gift ideas. 


As well as gifts I'll be pointing you toward local London shops for the best in Christmas food and drink. Where relevant, I'll list the London Walks tour that finishes near the shop in question.



As usual, you can drop me a line with your own tips by emailing the usual address, by leaving a comment below or via Twitter.


W. Martyn, Muswell Hill…



Adam writes…

I'm shopping local today… In deepest North London, in Muswell Hill, my favourite tea shop has plied its trade since 1897. W. Martyn of Muswell Hill sells an hypnotic range of loose leaf and bag teas – Orange Pekoe, anyone? In fact I’ve usually got a pot of their Assam (in my favourite Cornishware pot) on the go as I work on this blog.

At Christmas, Martyn does all kinds of hampers too…




… and these days they even have the facility to shop online at www.wmartyn.co.uk.


But if you can, pay them a visit. The interior is the very definition of cornucopia…


… and the aroma of roasting coffee beans wafting out on to Muswell Hill Broadway is irresistible.

(I blogged about Martyn last month in my London Christmas Cake post - catch up with that HERE.)
