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.

This one was definitely more for me than it was for my son. He was bored, but I was in heaven. Tea and scones were definitely the highlight for him, the fantastic shopping was all for me.

No matter what people say about Harrods it stays the number one shopping department store in UK. No other shop could match it. it has a history behind it and a super brand name to carry it for the next generations. that's it.

A must-stop for shoppers that visit London! This store honestly has EVERYTHING! We were able to even mail our postcard inside their store! It is like a museum for fashionistas on a budget! For an affordable souvenir, stop by their Harrod's shop on the fourth floor to pick up a famous pvc bag or one of their cuddly stuffed animals!

A very nice shop where you will find everything you ever dreamed of. The restaurants at the top are one of the my favourite things there.

Obviously a trip to London means going to harrods- generally for window shopping and some shopping. Wonderful brands, really good customer service and neat and tidy which is obvious considering the price tag. Not somewhere you'd shop every day however wonderful for architecture and atmosphere. Amazing food hall- very tasty Turkish delight (avoid the rose flavoured one). We went to... More

Harrods is a beautiful department store that is definitely worth visiting. The food hall is spectacular! It is well worth taking the time to look at what there is to offer. I bought a cupcake to munch on (a bit pricey but oh so beautifully iced and very delicious). I can't remember what floor has the souvenir type things to... More

Its not a place for the normal people. If you have some respect and good taste dont go there. Maybe it was a part of history of trade but now its only the building with different owner....

We didn't go for shopping, mostly just to see what it was like. The architecture was just beautiful inside. There is a huge food area but were disappointed to find there was no where to actually eat once we got our food. We did end up looked around the shopping areas and prices were not bad. It was a good... More

Of course a holiday in London had to include a trip to Harrods. Yes it was interesting to go inside and see it all, but boy, the staff were cold and unfriendly and as soon as we had a look through the store, we left. We went to other well known and top-of-the-market stores in London, and Harrods was nowhere... More

A visit to Harrods is a must when visiting London, this is a huge department store. only complaint is that cell phones hardly work in here, keep your family together since this place is huge and has multiple entrances.

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
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.
