After two centuries of dishing out cures to Londoners’ maladies age had started to wither this venerable pharmacy: cue a multimillion-pound revamp which balances an imposing heritage with a new range of products. Intriguing bits of antique paraphernalia are dotted among of-the-moment wellness fads –JB&C houses a royal prescription book, so you can gawp at Queen Victoria’s beauty secrets (cold cream and Coraline toothpaste, FYI). The store is also home to a globetrotting selection of fancy brands, from French cult favourites like Embryolisse and La Roche Posay to under-the-radar Antipodean suncare. You might come in looking for blister plasters, but you’ll leave with a bathroom-cabinet’s worth of  loot.

What a lovely store with this great atmosphere. Very good service and a lot of interesting products. I was also really impressed by this wide range of new cosmetic brands they offer. One of the best pharmacies/healthcare stores I have ever been to.
