If you go to London you must visit Harrods! Of course I had to! I was so amazed at the shear size of the store, I’m not even sure you can call it a store. Upon entering the doors you are greeted by staff that inquires of what you may be looking for and will direct you. Or you can just browse. Founded in 1834, Harrods, a luxury department store, occupies a 5-acre site and has 330 departments covering one million square feet of retail space. It is an adventure just to look around. The Food areas were a sensory overload of sights, smells and even taste. The staff and chefs on hand are all dressed in 1800’s style clothing and everyone is so polite and helpful.
As you can see the Food Hall was one of my favorites and I couldn’t help myself but take tons of pictures. The food was so bright and colorful and totally intoxicating. The aromas were killing us, around every corner was more food items of every thing imaginable. Even the architecture was captivating and reminded you of how it must have looked in the late 1800’s as you strolled through Harrods to purchase a scone and a cup of tea.
Take time to really peruse the photos and see more of what Harrods has to offer and if ever on Brompton Road in Knightsbridge, London step into a timepiece from the past as you enjoy Harrods too.
