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.

Not everything is expensive there the quiche Lorraine at the deli counter is very good and reasonably priced and my son used to get his close up magic tricks from there which on some occasions were cheaper than other places

I visited London recently with my dad, to attend an interview scheduled at the US Embassy. To make the most of the day, me and my dad ventured round London, paying a visit to one of our favourite places of all time - Harrods! Coming to the end of our experience in Harrods, we wanted to try the luxury vintage... More

This luxurious mall is an experience in itself. The items are quite expensive and you are paying a premium price for the brand, so don't plan to do your main shopping here! A visit worth though.

This palace converted to a shopping mall is probably the best you'll get to see. Of course it's crowded and noisy but with so many other distractions like the architecture and beauty, it's a dream world. Surreal at some levels. Best in the evenings when it's all lit up.

Harrods is definitely worth a visit, especially if the Christmas store is open! It is magical and an iconic shop!

Extremely disappointing experience. We waited for over 30 mins in a queue to be seated. This was on an average weekday. Perhaps the long queues explain the poor service we received. Once seated, we had to wait to be served. The wait staff showed no interest in recommending, or listening to our preferences. They were just keen to get it... More

The building itself is gorgeous and as you step inside, one will not be able to focus on one time as there is just so much to see! It's Harrods, hence the quality of the products are also good. I was lost in the food section with so many variety of cookies, jam, confectionery and other goodies. I hardly had... More

The Egyptian escalator was truly to behold, as were many of the food areas. The brands are incredible, however I am not a born shopper so most of it just washed over, even though there was a half yearly sale on. We bought the obligatory Harrod's themed nick knack.

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.
