  • I really do not understand why this place is mentioned so much. It is really no different than visiting an American-suburban Macy's... even had the large families with unruly children to boot! The arc...  more »

  • Spectacular store with an amazing selection of everything high-end you could wish for. The food hall is amazing and it's very easy to spend lots of money in there without trying. The only downside and the reason I've given it 3 stars is that whilst walking around the department selling china and glassware (where I was thinking of treating myself to some whiskey tumblers), my partner overheard a member of staff saying that they were keeping an eye on me and they were worried they couldn't see what I was doing. They then sent someone over to keep an eye on what I was up to - which was browsing the goods looking to spend some money. Needless to say that once I heard this story, my wallet didn't come out of my pocket. I fully accept that they can't trust everyone but this incident left a VERY sour taste in my mouth.
  • Harrods, what a unique experience. Gorgeous department, specially the food halls and their ceilings, corridors and stairs that were designed long time ago. I love the style of it. It have tried many things already and I have been eating in different restaurants of this lovely mall. I love the Harrods Lego model from The Toys Kingdom. It is beautiful! Its always great but it could be better. People can make it fantastic if they wish. Manners & etiquette are essential.
  • Obviously high end shopping! The food hall is fantastic - try some of the chocolates! The rest of the store is as good as visiting an art museum. As you'd expect, top end service. The toy section is excellent with competitive prices. Now, if I can only win the lottery....
  • Everytime I go to Harrods, the sheer size reminds me of what department stores must be. Primarily catering to the discerning taste of the rich and famous, Harrods is not the place for your general shopping. If you are looking for brands, it is highly unlikely that if the brand boasts itself to be top quality, it adorned the shelves and tables of Harrods. Well dressed salesmen (well, mostly salesmen, except in perfumes section) in their three piece suits size up and attend to the customers who are wiring up to splurge. This is pure and simple high street London sans recession. Highly recommended.
  • Harrods is a fantastic place to get some obscure fruit for salad dishes and the Harrods food jute bag is lovely and smart to carry it all in when home time comes. I like Galvin's in the store, but don't think it was amazing food though the staff are one of the most loveliest in all of the restaurants combined in Harrods. It gets very busy, but there's a pharmacy there so easy to get stuff, but don't think much of the staff there. My personal opinion is they could try harder in satisfying the customer's request. Bathrooms are so so in different parts of the store, but all in all its a lovely place to go and just relax at the champagne bar if you can get pass the crowd of tourists lol X

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
