It was a tough call, but organic superstore Whole Foods Market in west London pipped others to the post, thanks to its huge variety of top-notch produce.

Harry’s Bar Venice
Old-time favourite Harry’s Bar in Venice saw off the competition – a bellini here (where the drink was invented) is as essential a part of the city as a ride in a gondola. The stylish ambience has been drawing celebrities and tourists for almost 80 years. (cipriani.com)
