After shopping in John Lewis, I went to Selfridges for cream tea. However there was a long queue for tables so I did some shopping instead. The children's area was full of toys and books. Next I bought a blue cat dress. After all that shopping, I had a lovely cream tea.

This is a shop that you can just walk round and round seeing something different every time. The range of products on sale is surely unique and there is something in everyone's price range.

I am in this store frequently, sometimes several times a week as it is next door to my office. I am now starting to loose my patience with the store, I find the staff unapproachable, arrogant, rude and unhelpful. Every time I have asked where something is located I've either been ignored, had assistants roll their eyes at me, sigh... More

Loved the store - expected after one of my favorite shows 'Mr.Selfridge'. One more proof that bold and innovative solutions of a fearless entrepreneur can stay forever bringing joy and satisfaction to people, especially women. You have to be well off to shop there of course, but the quality of everything they sell is just second to none. The prices... More

I'm a big fan of the show Selfridges and because of this i really wanted to come and see the grandeur of the shop. As i stood the opposite side of the road to take a picture i was overwhelmed with emotion. How amazing it would have been to be the man who brought this shop to England. It was... More

when we were planning our trip to London we were thoroughly engrossed in PBS series of the same title and knew we just had to make the "pilgrimage" here. The face of the store kind of came up on us unexpectedly because of the crowd, but once we realized we were there the OMGs! started..The window displays were eye catching... More

This is a beautiful store - surpasses Harrods. Amazing window displays. A must see for shoppers in London and of course for the historical value. The original staircases are closed. One feature is "Make your own Magnums". Decorate and design yourself! A sweet treat!

Brilliant department store. Oxford streets finest. You can't visit London without going into selfridges to have a browse. Food hall in the ground floor. Housing cooked food, a supermarket, cakes, drinks etc. Many floors for you to browse the array of different brands, clothing, homewares, bedding, shoes, etc. Everything under one roof. Especially good for a rainy day.

My wife has been following this history on PBS in the USA and wanted to see The Pom Court, but "it was redecorated by the Germans in 1942." Funny comment from the staff. We stopped fro tea and coffee and had a nice stop with a taxi easily available to return to our hotel.

I've worked in retail for a long time and am a stickler for customer service. This store delivers in spades. I've been in most of America's great, grand department stores but I have never seen a men's shoe department larger than the one in Selfridges. If I had the money & the time I could have spent all day here.
