Harrods is the most famous department store in London, situated on Brompton Road in Knightsbridge. The business was founded in 1824 by Charles Henry Harrod as a drapers and haberdashery and was expanded by his son to sell other merchandise. In 1898 Harrods showcased Britain’s first moving escalator.

The shop occupies a 5-acre site which gives it over one million square feet of selling space throughout several departments. It is said that anything in the world can be bought from Harrods – even if it isn’t physically in the store, it can be ordered. The shop is most famous for luxury goods and has a Food Hall and Christmas Store which are known the world over.

Harrods also owns other businesses such as a bank, estates agent and aviation corporation. It is currently owned by Qatar Holdings.
