Each night 11,500 light bulbs illuminate the outside of Britain’s most iconic department store. There is nothing understated about Harrods, with 4.5 acres of retail space, seven floors dedicated to the world’s finest brands and over 1 million product lines – a visit is not complete without buying something emblazoned with the Harrods’ logo. Open from 10am until 8pm Monday to Saturday, with 11.30 to 6pm opening on Sunday, your visit must include a foray into the world famous Food Hall or one of the 30 eateries that are located throughout the store.
Greeted by the doormen in their top hat and tails, entering Harrods is like walking into a magic kingdom. Whatever your heart desires can be found in one of the many departments. From gold bullion on the lower ground floor, to The Pet Spa on the fifth floor. Harrods is idiosyncratic and oh so very British.
