Retail refresh: Burberry upgrades its Regent Street store

Not your ordinary shop

Retail refresh: Burberry upgrades its Regent Street store
Celebrating the best of British craftsmanship, creativity and produce, Burberry's new extension is a welcome addition to Regent Street

Innovation is one of the key things that sets Burberry apart — and its latest extension on Regent Street shows their flair for retail to its best advantage. The brand recently unveiled its new wing at the flagship store, which houses an exclusive new area dedicated to gifting (yes, those adorable Burberry bears are going to be available here, among other fabulous presents) and a world first for the brand: Thomas's, an all day café that serves up British classics made from the finest seasonal produce.

The gifting area is perfect for picking up thoughtful little gifts for travel, such as throw blankets and plush pillows, stationery sets, and games. Whether you prefer it embroidered or embossed, skilled craftsmen are also available at the store to personalise gifts for that special touch.

The café also marks Burberry's first foray into the world of food and beverage. Conceptualised with the ethos of offering up the best British produce sourced from small farmers and artisan suppliers around the United Kingdom, Thomas's will serve up brunch favourites, afternoon tea and decadent dinners. Mark your diaries folks, this is one stop you'll have to make during fashion week.
