Nice shops with high end brands but the real winner is the food area on the lower floor. Lots of gourmet options including an oyster bar, beef jerky deli and lots of sweet treats. Supermarket area was fun to stroll with all the gourmet food. We went to Salt Beef and my partner's beef sandwich was to die for. I... More

Referring only to mens clothes and coffee machines/coffee. An extremely expensive store. A fine range of small coffee machines, but staff ilinformed, some coffee machines are rubbish, others outstanding but hugely overpriced.

Went to see Breakfast at Tiffany's on Saturday lunchtime - the staff were attentive, the drink selection good but little food (I guess this can be catered for elsewhere in Selfridges). Go to the restroom before going to the cinema because that's where they are - back outside in the department store. The cinema was very plush and well furnished... More

Having watched the TV Series on PBS, we wanted to actually visit the store to see for ourselves. It is a large medium priced department store, I say that because there are some more expensive stores in other shopping areas of London and Oxford street is by London Standard considered medium price. It is a beautiful store well laid out... More

A beautifully designed department store - bright, colorful, upbeat feeling. But we didn't buy anything because everything was too expensive. I checked the price of a Scottish cashmere scarf, which would have cost 4 times more than I paid further north in England & Scotland. But it was worth the visit because it's a lavish, gorgeous, store!

It was a long walk from the Tube (Bond Street was closed), but the walk to Selfridges was an experience in itself since there was a protest going on along the sidewalk. But we had to make the trip since we are fans of the TV series. Only the ornate front doors look original, along with a couple interior columns.... More

I watched the Mr. Selfridge series on PBS, and decided to see if the store is as spectacular as it appeared. In short, it was. Go see it. It's been restored to its former glory and it's just fun to shop there.

A little more refined than Harrods, but overall the same type of experience...expensive goods that are nice to look at while you watch the wives of oil company execs buy it all.

I took a foreign student here for afternoon tea. At £19.50 each it seemed not too bad in comparison to other London venues. It was a great sight seeing London from the roof and the tea was good. The wait her he had was charming but the service was painfully slow. We didn't have a meal but saw plenty of... More

This store has all of the upscale items you would expect but each department is segmented too often so it is somewhat difficult to have any continuity if you are shopping for a specific type of clothing or gift. The ground floor offers the fragrance area and the aroma is overwhelming; the food court is fun.
