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.

Worth a visit while in London. Food halls were amazing, prices extraordinary. Jewelery and watch displays worth a look. So to is the Egyptian room and central escalators. Grandeur of the building would probably be lost on young kids (we left ours home with Grandparent while we visited).

Harrods is a treat for those with a yen to spend. Lots of choices and even some collectibles for the souvenir crowd with a small budget. Tea anybody? You can get a choice from a huge variety or simply sit and enjoy some right there. Anything and everything. You have to buy something just to say you shopped at Harrods.

I would only visit Harrods because of the branding it has managed to achieve and foe the icon it has become in Kensington. Definitely overpriced for what is on offer and with so many starving and deprived people, I would not bow to the prices. I appreciate that others however do not care. Salmon is salmon for me

In most cities near me, the department stores have largely been done in by Walmart and Amazon. Harrod's takes you back to the days when you'd ride the escalators between 5 or more floors, and find helpful salespeople in each department along with attractive displays to tempt you to blow the budget. But it's not a nostalgic theme park either.... More

Coming to harrods is an experience. The food hall is something else, especially around xmas time. Loads of British things to buy, gifts, tea sets, biscuits, chocolate...then the fresh food is so good. I love the quiche. Loads of make up to look at. Wondering around the other floors like home wear etc you really think 'this is how the... More

Had an amazing experience, after the initial disappointment due to crossed lines regarding a pen I had ordered...where Mr Burfoot and Mr Patel endeavoured to resolve the issue...and hopefully over the next few days it will all end well...subsequently, in order to get coffee each member of staff approached for direction was extremely helpful, compared to how standoffish the entire...

Harrods! Needless to say it is one of the big attraction in London. I was there 1st Jan 2017. It is way too crowded. Hotel manager from Mandarin Oriental Hotel warned us of pick-pockets. It was all packed with customer especially there is a 50% 60 % off sale. The food hall remains the biggest attraction since even Hermès was... More

The place was actually beautiful to look at. I have to admit I was their at Christmas time so it was decorated magnificently. Strolling the departments was an experience in itself. Yes there were pricey items, (They have an art gallery), but I was surprised how many gifts I was able to get at very reasonable prices. Great sales too.... More

More upmarket than Selfridges & less unique than Libertys in my opinion. Does stock a vast array of items you wouldn't find in either Selfridges & in some cases Libertys but this is a place to come for the spectacle over actually buying stuff & expecting to have money left in your wallet. Perfect for the upperclass to do there... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood 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.
