Owner description: 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.

A fabulous place to visit, just floors and floors of utter taste, you can almost feel the money dripping from the walls, however, it's just an experience to walk through the store, and oogle on loads of stuff you probably won't ever have. The food hall is amasing, and a wonder and experience for anyone interested in food. Just do... More

Whilst spending time in London we wanted to visit Harrods and found that the entrances along the Brompton Road were very busy and that it was much quieter to enter from the side road where there were less people. Inside the building is just as amazing as it is outside, some of the ceilings are so beautiful especially in the... More

So much more than a department store. Go just for the best fish & chips you'll ever taste at Bentleys plus the cherry pie from the food hall... pure bliss!

An excellent place to feel that the money you have is nothing! A place one should visit however be the short the time one spent there or whether you want to purchase something!

Harrods is an amazing place that makes me wish I had lots of money. As we aren't actually destitute we splashed out and had lunch at the Tea Room on the second floor. We went for the safe option of a pot of tea for two (that requires a strainer - no teabags in Harrods!) and two scones each. Every... More

One of the greatest of the British shopping experience, anything you need is available in one huge building. but be aware mobile phone reception is not great in there.
