This department store is incredible. The have everything your luxury heart desires. Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo, Chloe, Hermes, and Dior. Its all here. I especialy enjoyed Classic tea at Dollys on the bottom level. The tea is delicious as is the tower of sandwiches, scones, and cakes. Its an experience everyone should enjoy at least once. So bring your Amex and... More

In my opinion, the food department at Selfridges is even better than at Harrods. In particular, there's a huge variety of delicious foods of all kinds that you can buy and eat on the premises.

I didn't buy any clothing here, but the food level was absolutely amazing. Macarons, juices, personalized nutellas, and tons of other stuff. It's less crowded than Harrods and offers all of the same things, so I personally thought it was better.

I love visiting this huge store on Oxford Street although it is a bit too expensive to buy too much the window displays are renowned as probably the best in the capital

I could not visit all the sections of this massive store. The men's shoe section was my favorite. It beats ' shoe heaven' of Harrods by miles. The selection was exclusive and the range was excellent. The staff were polite and attentive. You could finish most of your shopping here under one roof. Highly recommended.

The first time I step into this mall, I thought it's just another watch shop but it's actually the watch section for the mall and that's just the starting of the entire trip for whole of several sections and levels for the mall. WOW!!

Each floor of this mammoth department store has a character of its own, generally speaking the higher you go the quieter it becomes. Even if you don't plan on spending any money, its a great opportunity to escape the crowded street outside and enjoy a person viewing of the latest couture. The food court is legendary, there's everything from cupcakes... More

First visit was impressed with quality, made several purchases - exactly what I'd been looking for. Pick up up catalogue & go early in day, always high on list when in London, something for everyone, unique gifts, homeware from Europe... Now Selfridges deliver to Australia / familiar Brands, great service, online awesome. Still nothing beats being able to touch the... More

Food court and chocolate section is only worthwhile location to visit here. Staff is beyond pushy; I suspect they would tackle you if you gave them the time of day. Avoid the perfume and make up area at all costs. It’s like a shark feeding frenzy. Not quite as pricey as Harrods however the staff made it intolerable.

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.
