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.

Didnt know what to expect, An extremely large "posh" store and a little pricey, I compare it to KaDeWe in Berlin and its not as good, however you can spend hours here, a visit to the food hall a must.

I visited Harrods after a lot of planning to buy myself a gift from Tiffany. I called ahead and the lady ensured a small selection of ring sizes were made available for me to try on, in the 2 designs I particularly wanted to see. I took a friend as we are not local to London and made a day... More

This store has everything. And the service is extraordinary good. It is as a museum to walk around. The sport department is fully equipped. Actually all departments are just so beautifully filled. I can walk around there for days. It is a bit expensive though.

It's just a big overpriced department store but the Christmas windows were lovely! It was very busy as expected and we did enjoy looking at the jewellery.

Its an amazing place. Has everything you can think of that you would want to buy. Easy to get lost inside and all the interior decorations are lovely. However it is extremely expensive.

My partner and I have been here many many times, and it's sometimes nice to just 'window shop' as most of the items are luxury branded items, although you can buy staples such as food or make up sold on the high street, it's a bit of a treat if your thinking of eating in whist there, as you can...

Extensive luxury foods with more emphasis on eating spots rather than take away as in previous years. Everything is the best and you pay for it. Watch everyone from tourists to the beautiful people from around the world.

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.
