Harrods department store has been a premier shopping venue patronised by royalty and wealthy London society for close to two centuries. Henry Edward Harrod began his retail career in the 1820s as a humble draper and grocer. In 1849, he bought a small shop in Brompton to sell perfumes, stationery, and produce. His son, Charles, took over the small business in the 1880s and made Harrods into the retail icon that it is today. Whilst it is under different ownership these days, the stately establishment still caters to the poshest clientele, and visitors must adhere to a strict dress code.
- Shop for some of the most exclusive fashions, jewellery and watches, cosmetics and perfumes, sporting goods, home furnishings and décor, fine foods and wine, and numerous other luxurious products in more than 300 different departments at Harrods in London.
- Enjoy gourmet meals, wines, artisan chocolates, French pastries, and fine international teas and coffees whilst browsing the finest shops in London.
- View the beautiful bronze statue and sombre memorial honouring Princess Diana and Dodi Al-Fayed, who was the son of the current owner of Harrods.
Harrods is located on Brompton Road in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, just three kilometres from the centre of London and 24 kilometres from Heathrow International Airport. Drivers take the A4 and M4 motorways to reach Harrods, and one can use the Piccadilly Line on the metro or the airport express bus to travel from the airport to Harrods. London has many public transportation options including the tube (the underground), overground rail, buses, and taxis. Many visitors tour the city centre on foot or by bicycle, and there are free city maps available at any tube station.
