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.

What can be said about this iconic store Amazing The Egyptian escalator is worth a look as an insight into Al Fayeds influence on the store and world in general

We stopped off at Harrods food court after a few hours walking and paddling about Hyde Park. So many food options. The bakery had so many beautiful treats i could have roamed around for hours (with a camera). This was a place where everyone in the family can find something they want to eat.

Absolutely huge shopping place. It has multiple floors, loads of high end shopping if you're into that. Huge food court, lots of tasty snacks. I just bought tea and a mug.

I loved wandering through this store... building alone is worth enjoying plus displays, opulence, everything from food, coffee, butcher to haute couture. Check out the Egyptian escalators!

Customer service is non existent, staff are rude and will avoid eye contact. My husband tried to buy ice cream for himself and our son the staff told him it was closing so he would serve him. Worst experience in London.

The best shop in the world! Better than Macy's New York or Saks etc etc. And the food hall sections are always amazing. Recommended!

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood 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.
