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.

The day we went to Harrods we had Afternoon Tea in the Georgian Room, bought a tea strainer in the silver department that matched what we used in the Georgian Room and browsed through the store. This was on a Thursday afternoon. It was crowded, but not overly so. At one point I went outside to get some fresh air... More

I love Harrods! So much to see and experience from food halls to the designer clothing (window shopping, of course). The kids adored the Toy Kingdom and found lots of cool treasures inside.

Chocolate department is a must! My eyes were as big as saucers. And stumbled across the Diana and Dodi memorial which was lovely to see

Nice decor but things are expensive and overpriced. The place itself can be a museum and the building is nice and central

Amazing for sightseeing with the family, unique shopping experience, very attentive staff, zero discrimination by staff as to how they interact with you compared to how you look, sound or speak. Great shop for leaders of nations, money launderers or income tax evaders. Positive point was the memorial for Dodi Al Fayed and Princess Diana on the basement floor.

Something for all at this famous store; whether you can afford to buy or not, the staff are very welcoming and informed. Suggest you travel each floor via the Egyptian stairwell and admire the decor. My favourites were the jewellery section and the food hall. Dream a little.... this is a must see for all tourists

We went around new years, the shop is beautiful on the outside and inside especially around the Christmas period and it is a spectacle to look at. Inside the store it is very busy as it has become a tourist attraction. Spent a long time in there as it does take a while to walk around the shop and you... 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.
