Really really disappointed. I went to 3 different concessions and none had what I wanted despite claiming to have it. If I was you go to Harvey Nichols or Harrods as have never been let down by either. Plus is a little more organised with staff willing to go that bit further.

Whatever else might be said about the overpriced merchandise, The one overpowering thing about Selfridges is the aroma of perfume. It is overpowering and pervades the entirety of the store. It is almost sickening. I was looking for the door after only 30 minutes to get fresh air. We do not see the need to ever return. Other places sell... More

Of course I wanted to go because of the PBS TV show but I was truly amazed. I had no idea it was so large! We were there during the celebration of 400 years of Shakespeare and all the windows were based on a Shakespearean play. Inside there was one display I particularly liked of Romeo and Juliet on different... More

Great food hall with a brilliant selection of traditional and modern products. Some small outlets within the food hall especially good are Pierre Herme, and Daylesford Organics. Well worth a visit for a picnic, special occasion shopping or for a lovely glass of champagne with the food hall.

What a shopping experience!! I went to Selfridges and wandered around to see what all the hype was about... I didn't even buy anything but just appreciated the experience as someone that loves to shop! They have everything and every department you can imagine. So many floors, so well designed. The stationary section does offer some cool stuff if you're... More

From the outside the store seems extravagant and overwhelming, and then on the inside its just as magnificent as you would imagine, but totally manageable. The staff are all friendly and helpful. Goes without saying that the products are gorgeous, but you don't need to buy anything to still experience the magic of Selfridges. I recommend the Food Hall for... More

My wife has been on at me for years to take her shopping at Selfridges, Oxford street and this weekend I obliged. There may be a perception that you should only visit if you have money, I would dispel this myth. The staff were attentive and although they worked for the individual concessions there were more than happy to answer... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
