While the Queen’s “Chemist” (pharmacy) certainly isn’t new—the first shop opened in 1798—it’s had a major revamp this year that’s worth mentioning. We’re big fans of the shop regardless of its looks, but the new lighting, modern display cases, and layout make it that much more compelling. You can find most medicines, tinctures, band aids, wraps, bath accessories, and vitamins here, but it’s the fancy English heritage soaps, bath products, and grooming accessories that make it unique: They carry everything from Floris soaps and perfumes—the Royal family’s preferred brand—to Mason & Pearson brushes, Grether’s Pastilles, and more.
