My tip, avoid the crowds i.e. tourists by heading to the higher floors such as the huge shoe floor and the designer floors. It is much calmer up there and shopping is a real treat here. Staff is very helpful and almost every imaginable brand is available somewhere in the store (they get it for you if you ask). Changing rooms are huge and there always seems to be some sort of a sale going.
If you can, get the Harrods card and start collecting points with every purchase. Its commitment free and rewards you for spending your well earned money.
I never leave Harrods without visting Laduree at the back of the building. It is one of the cutest cafes I know and the macaroons are to die for.
Most people feel a bit upmarket when telling folks that they’re shopping in Harrods…….why not, as long as you can afford it.
Truth is…that they do have some great stock and so very well designed.
My special interest is ties, and don’t they have some ‘crackers’ !! There is also some great shirts available…as for suits, I tend to take advantage of available bargains where ever I see them.
Thoroughly ‘feel good’ day out!
Every year I treat myself to a walk around Harrods. The good thing about it is if your doing the pedometer thing then you can rack up a lot of steps in this place.
I always have a look at a few different floors in particular. The pet shop ~ esp at the dogs they have there. The kids dept. Because I am just a child at heart:). The technology section ~ a girl has to dream.
But the last section I enjoy the most is the picture/ furniture. I love to see how the rich can pay out silly amounts of money 15 grand or so for a sofa. What has made this sofa so special I’ll never know.
This shop is a must to see. Even if you don’t buy anything ~ just have a look around. I promise you its good.
People come to Harrods 1. Because they like to think they are very rich and posh 2. Because it is a famous store and something to do in the UK 3. Because they just feel like it that day!
Harrods is a bit of a retail institution by virtue of good PR and news channels. It is a delightful store to walk around, and if you have a lot of dough, then it is definitely the place for you. It also is great for the average commoner as its stock ranges from the extreme high end to the normal, conservative High street wear we see in fellow shops and department stores. Worth going in, even if it is just to say you’ve a been to Harrods! Shop-a-la!
I love Harrods and was distraught when Al-Fayed decided to sell his legacy on earlier this year, I’ve recently seen my wedding dress from Harrods http://www.vogue.co.uk/news/2011/11/03/harrods-230000-dre... JUST NEED TO FIND A MAN NOW! haha!
I went there two years ago and I was really impressed!
Great quality and variety of products! But it’s quite expensive…
If you go there with a group of younger people: Take care they go in one by one and that they wear ordinary clothes. My group members were 15 and older and they had to try at different entries to finally get in.
“There is only one Harrods” so the description goes and i guess apart from the numerical accuracy it is a department store in another league. Apparently Harrods is one of the most popular tourist attractions and its not surprising given its imposing exterior an green clad uniformed doormen. Inside enjoy the lavish foodhall of the ground floor, the exquisite collection of luxury handbags, jewellery and fabulous array of cosmetics housed in the White Hall, and the wonderful selection of designer wear in the floors above. Check out the Egyptian staircase and tributes to Princess Diana and the pet department! Step into the many cafes and restaurants (my favourite is the Krispy Kreme dougnuts and La Duree cafe side by side) Such contrasts and delights make Harrods a must see! Even the toilets are a luxury experience! be aware that luggage, pushchairs and backpacks are not permitted and have to be held at left luggage (for a fee) to ensure a smooth shopping experience. The only downside is the high costs of parking and the fact this place is easy to get lost in!

Recently a dear colleague was in London. That woke the memories on our years back lying vacation.
At that time we were among other things also in the Harrods. The house was also on our list however then became also bitterly necessary. I maltreated my feet in such a way that I could not put on normal shoes. Thus we preferred visit in the Herrods. And it was as in a fairy tale!
First we visited the shoe department. Here I got recommended THE shoes by a super nice employee. Super soft flip-flops and these were also totally elegant. Thick rubber sole with black interior and red straps. Whereupon thrones small rhinestones butterflies. (I have those today still :o)
After my feet were happy, we made ourselves on the investigation of the remaining house. We visited all levels from the cellar to the roof. All departments were very interesting and unforgettable in your own kind. We ate delicious. We admired the luxury goods. And we bought teas and souvenirs.
That was a beautiful and unforgettable day.
Harrods in one of my favourite places in London...when I have the money! If it's pay day, by all means go for a day out in Harrods and treat yourself! It’s a great place with lots of brilliant things in it...and the food hall is amazing! However if you are after a bargain avoid Harrods at all costs...it is a very pricey place! It's also very easy to get lost in, so if you're a tourist or aren't familiar with Harrods make sure you do your research or bring someone who is. Having said this, Harrods is brilliant and definitely worth a visit!!
It's a good department store, albeit very overhyped. It's a bit overkill with the guards everywhere, but I guess that is typical London since they have it at most expensive stores on New Bond Street too. KaDeWe in Berlin is far more impressive when it comes to styling and the assortment.
I have been coming to Harrods for years - at least a quarter of a century. Of course it is a wide-ranging department store, immensely popular with tourists both British and from abroad, but also regular customers from the London area.
I used to use the barber shop in the basement next to the Green Man, but eventually found it had priced itself out of my market which takes some doing.
The Sound and Music section has a good quality range - though not as extensive as HMV - of music and DVDs, with quite a good selection of international film. The Computer section nearby is almost wholly pitched at the top end of the market and way beyond most users' price range - I think they misjudge the market here, and have a lot of footfall but few sales where with a different approach they could sell a lot more.
The Georgian Restaurant at the top is one of my favourites. Here you can have your fish filleted expertly at your table or collect your roast lunch from the buffet. A pianist will be playing during the day. The restaurant is split with the buffet serving area cutting it in two - if you want to be at the piano end (the grander end) you may need to book your table. Two at least of the waiting staff have been here 25 years, and recognise and greet me which is always flattering.
The Food Halls are renowned to the extent they are slightly clogged by tourists. I think the butchery section is especially good, you can get veal or liver carved as you wish, superb fillet steaks, racks of lamb and so on. The fruit section once had peaches so tempting I bought four simply because of the smell although I never eat them and gave them to a neighbour.
The wine section used to be handily placed on the ground floor so you could almost dash in by taxi but it is now in the basement. There are some seriously good wines there, though St James's is possibly a better place to pick great wines.
Overall a great experience. Avoid during the sales owing to excessive crowds. Parking in the area is difficult, but there is a multistorey carpark just off the road on the east side. Knightsbridge tube is adjacent.
This institution is the same thing like "Les Galleries Lafayette" in Paris, all is very expensive and not always beautiful but if you want a small kitsch bed for your dog or a Dior dress for your baby girl, it is the place to be !
