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 your visiting London then you have to visit Harrods, it's a must. I loved looking at the diamonds and when I win the lottery I will be going back there. In the meantime there's a great gift shop with reasonably priced items. The staff are very friendly and make you feel very welcome.

You can't come to London without calling into Harrods. Its nice to have a walk around the shop itself & the area that the shop is in. But be warned its not cheap, its all high end goods. Not a long walk from Harrods to Buckingham palace, about 10/15 minutes.

The lights at night, the clothing, the toy store with its collectable cuddly toys, the food market and delicatessen all delightful. Easy to manoeuvre through, clean, lavishly decorated, sushi bars and cafes and the best of everything available here. If you have money to spend or just window shop this famous store is well worth a stop off down Kensington.

There are better places to go for shopping. You go to Harrods to be able to say you went there. It is very expensive and you can pick up a few Harrods items from the store at the airport rather than going to the flagship store in Knightsbridge. I like to walk there (25 minutes from High Street Kensington) for... More

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.
