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.

If you're impressed by the brands that Harrods sell, then you're not used to things. The U.K. is my 2nd home and this is the 1st time I've ever been to Harrods. The decor and structure is amazing. Think of it as Barneys with 100 times better decor & architectural designs. The shoe section is what you expect from the... More

Even if you are on tight budget, still make sure that you will allow yourself sometime to just dive in this luxurious place and treat your senses with the high quality products and various types of eye catching products.

I've been to Harrods several times and have enjoyed each visit. The gift shop is a great place to pick up gifts for family and friends back home. The department store is very large and I've been turned around a few times. However, the staff is very friendly. On this last trip, an employee was kind enough to take me... More

While my wife was busy in what she calls "shoe heaven" I enjoyed my time exploring the latest cameras in the electronics area. They have the latest and greatest equipment on display. If shopping isn't your thing the gourmet foods that are available to eat in or take out are exceptional and worth the trip to check out in and... More

Unique items with a wide range. A present to buy for any budget. Tea and chocolates are very delicious and beautiful, especially for Christmas holidays presents. The assistants on the higher end departments are kind enough to let you look through their products without bothering you.

Spent an hour wandering around here whilst on a Travelstyle weekend tour with my 13 year old granddaughter. She found the Victorian splendour fascinating and was astonished at the variety of foods on offer in the Food Hall. It's many years since I visited Harrods and I was pleasantly surprised to find it exactly as I remembered, olde worlde although... More

My last visit to Harrods was not enjoyable. They have made many changes in the decoration inside. You feel a lost without a reason

Okay, so maybe we wandered around talking about how we couldn't afford pretty much everything we saw but it's a sight to behold and shouldn't be missed when visiting London. We were the only ones on our tour that got to go to Harrod's because we went out on our own, taking the wonderful Underground railway! The amount of merchandise... More

Didn't know what to expect but was surprised by the famous department store. Couldn't afford anything in the actual store but it was really nice walking around looking at all the nice merchandise and decorations. Bought a hazelnut cake and mango lassie in the food area which was so good and surprisingly cheap!

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.
