Harrods remains at the height of British luxury retail, attracting millions...

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 me Harrods is the most iconic store in London. I have been a loyal shopper there for many years. Today was the first time in +_30 years that I was let down. Firstly the store lay out takes time to find anything. I asked for a particular item. Was told to turn left turn left. Well never found it.... More

Recently visited Harrods for the first time in many years and it was wonderful. Very friendly staff and knowledgeable. The store is very well laid out with escalators at either end of the store. Each floor is totally different. The food department is a must, the display of the foods is amazing. A great way to spend a couple of... More

We were in London, we wanted to see Harrods, I can tell you it can be overwhelming seems like all of the luxury companies have little booths here. At first it was wow this place is cook and frankly we found it boring after a short while, what I found more interesting was the restaurants and food sections. This was... More

To visit Harrods is a must in London. I enjoy watching every single detail in the store. And I also enjoy buying souvenirs in the gift shop, in the second floor. Wonderful!

You don't have to shop and with the prices being what they are, I don't blame you for NOT shopping, but it's very unique. Especially to an American, Harrods can turn out to be a unique "mall" or "department store" experience. It's the white-glove treatment and it's so much bigger than you think it would be. The interior is beautiful... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
