The iconic flagship store has some buzzing new residents...

The rooftop of Selfridges London is now home to 100,000 bees!

The hives have been installed to support the opening of ‘Hive’, a new restaurant within the store. Not only will the homemade honey be used in the restaurant, it is hoped the new house guests will bring environmental benefits to surrounding parks including Green Park, Hyde Park, Paddington Street Gardens, Portman Square Gardens and Manchester Square.

Hive at Selfridges is a concept restaurant based all around honey and also features talks by conservationist Mark Patterson on beekeeping and the critical importance of bees in the ecosystem. Patterson is also in charge of looking after the four rooftop hives.
