Founded by Charles Henry Harrod in 1849, Harrods is a luxury department store. Nestled in London's Knightsbridge, this iconic store spans seven floors, offering an unparalleled shopping experience.

Renowned for its exquisite selection of luxury goods, from haute couture to gourmet delicacies, Harrods exudes sophistication. Its ornate architecture and attentive service elevate the atmosphere, attracting discerning shoppers worldwide. With a history steeped in royal patronage and cultural significance, Harrods remains a symbol of timeless elegance and lavish indulgence, making it not just a store, but an emblem of luxury living.

The department store was acquired by House of Fraser in 1959, which in turn was purchased by the Fayed brothers in 1985. In May 2010 Harrods was sold to Qatar Holdings, the sovereign wealth fund of the State of Qatar. The business employs approximately 4,000 members of staff in departments including food and beverages, toys, luxury fashion and furnishings.
