Harrods
  • West End Loop

Harrods is London’s most famous store. Located in Brompton Road in the Knightsbridge area, it is also very close to Hyde Park. Harrods dates back to 1834 when Charles Henry Harrod opened a small food store. In December 1883, Harrods fell victim to a huge fire and was destroyed. Shortly afterwards, the building was rebuilt on a much larger scale. Nowadays, Harrods offers luxurious decorations including statues, fountains and rooms decorated with different motifs. It also has an Egyptian room and commemorative monuments to honour the memory of Diana of Wales.
