Harrods Department Store

Discover Harrods, the most famous department store in the world

Harrods Department Store

Harrods Department store is the most famous in the world. With 330 departments providing 13 acres of floor selling space for its 5,000 employees to present its fine products and services.

Henry Charles Harrod, a tea merchant, purchased a small grocers shop in Knightsbridge village, west of London, in 1849. Henry’s son Charles expanded the business rapidly to include perfumes and stationary. As the company grew, Harrods boasted, “we can supply anything from a packet of pins to an elephant”, and they did.

There are sixteen restaurants, various cafes and a great Ice Cream Parlour where you can order the famous “Harrods Special.” The food halls are extraordinary, and Gordon Ramsay’s burger joint is sheer heaven using ingredients from the Harrods in-house butchers.

Harrod's has are rather sophisticated department store neighbour, Harvey Nichols. A very different place, catering for the well-heeled local residence. Luxury hotels nearby include 11 Cadogan Gardens, a boutique hotel in a quaint side-street village and The Milestone Hotel overlooking Kensington Palace. The Goring Hotel is a favourite afternoon tea spot for the Queen and one of London's finest privately owned hotels.
