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 best place to buy for that something unique to take home for a present or a souvenir, plenty of restaurant to eat at too. If you have young ones take them to see Santa they get the best present. Also good for window shopping and the window display is something else , definitely have to check it out if... More

I always like popping into Harrod's but can never quite get over how busy it is. I think it's become quite the tourist attraction! People everywhere who seem to meander and get in your way.... Very frustrating! Harrod's bit of a labyrinth and quite easy to get lost in, so it's always worth pre-agreeing a meeting place! Lots of wonderful... More

If you consider buying a nice gift at Harrods either be rich or forget it. It is impressing how much unusable goods are produced for high amounts of money finding a wealthy buyer. It was an interesting visit but it is unnecessary to return.

Harrods was on my top list to visit while in London, what a lovely shop, my kids loved the toy shore, it was amazing. We really felt special, the girls had nail art done and some glitter tattoos. Staff treated us like Royals. Children clothing department was amazing and again treated like royalty. I'm not rich by any means but... More

Large range of teas. The food started with a small cheese and tomato tart, followed by four kinds of sandwiches. Once we had finished the sandwiches the waiter brought warm scones served with clotted cream, lemon curd a two types of jam. When we started on the petit fours they brought individual trifles. The service is very good but slow... More

If you can afford it, you know it and you wouldn't be reading this. For the rest of us: Landmark of London Great cafe and restaurant. People watching, window shopping and then catch the high tea which is delicious.

Got there at 8pm so we had an hour before closing time and went straight to the toys floor - had heard they can throw you out if you don't look 'decent' enough but clearly this didn't happen to us even though we were mostly clad in t-shirts, shorts, and sandals! (Maybe we looked Arab enough to be allowed a... More

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.
