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.

For some reason whenever we shop here we don't enjoy it as much as we should. To us the store doesn't flow right and we find it difficult to navigate round. I wish I liked it more as their reward scheme on purchases is a great bonus! I usually end up picking Selfridges over here. If you are visiting as... More

Would never visit this iconic store at this time of year ever again. So busy I felt claustrophobic and really concerned regarding fire regulations as found it so difficult to get out of store. Very little information and directions in the store which I think is very disappointing for a store of this size. Not many staff to ask directions,... More

I went to Harrod's to, in my own words "see what the fuss is about". Well now I know! This store is amazing. I was totally blown away. It's like shopping heaven!

With over 28 restaurants and coffee shops, Harrods caters for every appatite and every shoppers needs. We browsed the floors with no particular disire to buy and every staff member we met were polite and very chatty. The food hall is a fabulous place to visit and will make your mouth water!!

I really can't recommend Harrods enough- as a high end retailer, the prices and range might turn some people off at the idea of entering, but I truly believe it is worth the visit just to have a peek! The phenomenally decadent escalator alcove, with its rich Egyptian style and elaborate Princess Diana/Dodi Al-Fayed memorial fountain is one of my... More

Went in the middle of a Tuesday in December. Way too crowded to be enjoyable. Will not be going back. The only good thing was a very clean bathroom.

As a visitor, I was staggered by the over-inflated prices and the sheer hype attached to everything remotely connected to the brand. True, the items on sale in the food hall would tend to be a tad expensive to source by their very nature and number - it was much the same throughout the store. Outside shoppers arrived by taxi...
