Description: Harrods remains at the height of British luxury retail, attracting...
Harrods remains at the height of British luxury retail, attracting millions of loyal customers from across the globe with its unrivalled product selection, world-class service, innovative retail theatre and historic setting. The store was opened in 1849 by Charles Henry Harrod as an expansion of his humble East End grocery and tea business. Today, it is one of the most distinguished names in the world. Seven floors and 330 departments showcase the best of luxury merchandise, from high-end fashion and accessories to the finest homewares and the latest technology. There are 28 restaurants in-store; we continue to enhance our portfolio with Galvin Demoiselle, Bentley's Sea Grill, and the institution that is The Georgian. Customers enjoy a wealth of exclusive services, such as By Appointment Personal Shopping and The Penthouse, a private suite dedicated to unsurpassed bespoke service in a beautiful environment. Other departments include the Urban Retreat at Harrods spa, a theatre ticket bureau, and The Studio, the store's interior-design service. Qatar Holding acquired the business in 2010, and it continues to guide - and invest strongly in - the store according to its philosophy: Anything is possible. Harrods continuously seeks to surpass the desires and expectations of its customers, staying true to its original motto: Omnia omnibus ubique (everything for everyone, everywhere). Harrods is located on Brompton Road, near the Knightsbridge London Underground station.

One of the bigest store in the world. You can find everything at Harrods. Or if you don't want to shop, you can spend some hours just looking around :)

It is wonderful and enjoyable experience; it is Harrods after all. However, everything is pricy; it is good if you want to buy gifts.

With the exit of the Knightsbridge tube station almost at the door of Harrods, you will find almost anything you need or want in this Super Store. Whilst Harrods is known to be an expensive place to do your shopping, you will find it irresistible to avoid buying at least some small item as a memento of your visit here.... More

Gorgeous, on my first ever visit I even got excited by the beautiful works of art that were the various elevators! All the normal high-end brands - beautiful stuff that I couldn't possibly afford but love to look at. Polite, attentive staff and a welcome atmosphere - unlike a couple of the big London department stores, they don't look like... More

Harrod's is an experience you won't believe, if you've never done it. Besides what you would expect in a department store, there are specialty restaurants on all floors, and don't miss the ice cream parlor. It's really incredible. Much of the merchandise is well out of pocketbook range (seriously -- I inquired about a dress and was told it was... More

Expensive, luxurious and a spectacle. Go to the food hall, the toy department and the gift section for affordable items to take home as souvenirs. Just go and marvel at the beauty of the interior and the fantastic things they sell. My teenage girls loved it especially the beauty and fragrance areas. The staff were very friendly and professional (and... More

Harrods is one the most famous London landmark. You might think of Harrods as of a department store located in Knightsbridge but it so much more than that. I recommend tourist-visiting Harrods because of its XIX century architecture and style as well amazing interiors. The interior is very stylish, luxury and looks like a masterpiece. Harrods uniqueness does not stem... More

Yeah lovely to have a wander around at really expensive stuff. Really nice to see really basic wood work, selling for thousands... The handbags? I'd rather buy a second property thanks. I'm saving up to buy a pencil case from Harrods one day.

Famous for being the shop for the richer of the population, Harrods is a real eye-opener to the world of the rich. There is a wide range of products from clothing to food but the real treat is the beautiful cakes and desserts available to buy. You can buy one portion or, if you have the money, the whole cake...

WOW. Upmarket Harrods is the biggest department store in Europe and is situated in Knightsbridge, London. Be prepared for crowds and to walk a lot. There are 330 departments catering for everything. Visiting the Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed memorial is another highlight. We enjoyed looking at the Chocolate varieties in one of the Harrods Food Halls. Products are expensive... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
