While not as high end as Harrod's, Selfridges may be the best all around department store in London. In part this is because it includes a myriad of specialty stores inside itself and has a certain chic hipness to its atmosphere as well as the goods/merchandise it chooses to sell.

A must when visiting London. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Well laid out with lots of variety. Excellent restaurant and afternoon tea cafe. Great to have your makeup done especially by the Bobbi Brown staff or a hand massage at the Jo Malone counter. Yes , it can get busy at the weekend or during the holiday period. Try going... More

We first visited selfridges on saturday and whilst browsing I came across a bracelet i liked so decided I would like to try it on. I tried to get the attention of the staff member but was ignored so my mum then tried to gain her attention again with no luck. Then as we were about to leave a staff... More

My first trip to Selfridges.... I hated it and could not wait to leave. My much anticipated visit... I whizzed through those big beautiful revolving doors and held my breath. I was ready to be met but the class of Selfridges. Sadly not. The building was overheated, too loud, over perfumes, over staffed and too busy. Don't even get my... More

Like millions of others, we have enjoyed the Mr. Selfridge series on public television. Although we have been to the store on other occasions, we were particularly curious this trip since it has been a while. We found the store very attractive and tidy ... even better than our favorable memories. The service staff we dealt with was very knowledgeable... More

I have visited this store on several occasions and am yet to see a member of staff smile. A noticeable lack of interest in customers and an aggressive style of service have ensured I will never return. There are several other department stores along Oxford Street all of whom offer a far more friendly and helpful service so they get... More

We had watched a show on Amazon Fire TV about Mr. Selfridge and his store/concept. It was great to see it in person, from the main entrance through the perfume counters to the denim studio! I love that all major department stores are styled on Selfridge's layout! The escalator areas were full of fun and funky artwork, including a giant-sized... More

A highlight of a trip to London at Christmas is to see the lights along Oxford Street. Selfridges didn't disappoint and came up with window displays which were streets ahead of any other store. A lot of people were stopping to snap photos of the most elaborate ones. There is an information desk just inside the main entrance. Staff directed... More

I love shopping in Selfridges but have had to deal with customer services on a couple of occasions. They are totally unhelpful and dismissive and do not take complaints on board. Nice shop but once they have your money they couldnt care less

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
