HARRODS


87-135 Brompton Road, London SW1X 7XL t: +44 (0)20 7730 1234 w: www.harrods.com


Newcomers to Knightsbridge may be surprised to hear of a local palace: the Terracotta Palace, better known as Harrods. The famous Green Men – doorkeepers, friendly faces, and repositories of a wealth of London trivia – welcome visitors to eight floors of the world’s finest brands and services. Harrods may have had its beginnings in 1849 as a humble greengrocer’s, but these days, the Food Halls’ four rooms of Art Nouveau splendour burst with exotic specialities. And with 28 restaurants in total, foodies are spoilt for choice. There’s family-friendly dining at the Disney Café, traditional dishes at The Georgian and pan-Asian cuisine from chef Ian Pengelley at the most recent arrival, Chai Wu. For the fashion-focused, there’s a new marble-clad mecca to explore. Just a short escalator ride away (a journey that may have seemed slightly more startling to the intrepid customers who rode the world’s first escalator at Harrods in 1898), the store’s premier fashion houses can now be found in one room: Superbrands. Already in residence are Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Gucci, Loro Piana, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Ralph Lauren Collection, Ralph & Russo and Valentino. Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Céline, Miu Miu and Saint Laurent are set to arrive soon. The store’s sales associates are always on hand to guide and advise visitors. Each is an expert in his or her field thanks to extensive training, and they bring a depth of knowledge and experience to their roles. Whether a customer needs advice on what to do in London, help sourcing an unreleased or unavailable product, or assistance planning a birthday party, Harrods’ employees will go above and beyond to make it happen. With a rich history, a wealth of premium collections and world-class service, Harrods is an unmissable stop on any visitor’s itinerary.
