2012 is Britain’s year and Selfridges wants to celebrate it with a bang – a Big British Bang to be exact, the title of store’s all encompassing creative homage to the Jubilee and the Olympics.
Spend sunny days sipping tea on the roof of the department store beside a fantastical crazy golf course created by foodie architects Bompas and Parr. The 9-hole, cake-based course is open from 12 noon until 7pm every day (6pm on Sundays), and promises to be the best game of golf you’ll see this summer.
Bompas and Parr are famous for their experimental culinary creations which merge fine ingredients with a serious dose of fun. From an Adventure Hamper complete with bioluminescent lollies and medicinal pickles to presenting Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in ‘Taste-o-rama’they are at the cutting edge of gastronomy gaming.
Of course, after all of that exercise, you’ll need refreshment. The course has an on-site Daylesford Cafe serving up lunch, afternoon tea, drinks and dinner six storeys above the streets of London.
The roof is open until 2 September. As part of the Big British Bang, Selfridge’s are hosting the Big British Shop, filled to bursting with exclusives from iconic British brands.
