Forest on the Roof at Selfridges Returns

A rooftop may not necessarily be the first location of choice during the winter, but what if said rooftop had been transformed into an Alpine forest (and was covered by a roof)? Selfridges’ renowned rooftop restaurant has once again been transformed into a dazzling wintry forest; the forest’s walkway has been adorned with glitter balls and splashes of gold, getting shoppers and restaurant goers into the festive spirit… in case the Christmas decorations in Selfridge’s and lights on Oxford Street haven’t done that already.
