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.

The location is fantastic so many outside as the inside. A few times a month I go to buy cold cuts. by good Tuscan I recognize both the excellent quality of the materials that are directly imported from the production, as the excellent service of the staff. It is a little bit expensive, but once in a while is well... More

Harrods is a true shopper's paradise. There is everything there from the finest china, crystal, and linens to food. The bakery products and cakes all look delicious, especially the chocolate layer cake. Enjoyed tea, sandwiches, scones, and chocolate sweets in the restaurant upstairs. A must when visiting London.

We had High Tea at Harrod's and it was quite enjoyable. I have a gluten allergy and was totally accommodated with all kinds of yummy tea sandwiches, scones and sweets.

Came here to do some shopping and get ice cream - friendly staff and very clean. Lots to see! Found it to be a little dark inside in certain places but it won't stop me returning

Wow we were just blown away with this place! A little expensive but the food hall is to die for! Also 4 levels of clothes, shoes, handbags and accessories. Even if you don't buy anything it's worth the visit. A must see (and I'm not a big shopper)..

Wanted to experience a classic "high tea". Thought - mistakenly - that Harrods might provide this given its upmarket reputation. Overpriced, slow service, paper serviettes(!) and stale scones. Expectations were high and Harrods didn't deliver, in my view.

My wife and our Lady friends loved this place. I really enjoyed some of the architecture and a few other things. If you find yourself in the area, pop in for a look around.

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
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.
