Fodor's Review

With an encyclopedic assortment of luxury brands, this Knightsbridge institution, now owned by the Qatar Investment Authority, has more than 300 departments and 30 eating and drinking options, all spread over 1 million square feet on a 4½-acre site. Now populated more by window-shopping tourists and superrich visitors from abroad than by the bling-averse natives, Harrods is best approached as the world's largest, most upscale and expensive mall. Focus on the spectacular food halls, the huge ground-floor perfumery and jewelry departments, the excellent Urban Retreat spa, and Shoe Heaven, Europe's biggest shoe department. The new Superbrands area houses haute couture from top international designers like Dior, Fendi, Prada, Valentino, Chanel, and more, while the children's department has a mini-me version for the toddler who wouldn't be seen in anything less than Burberry, Baby Dior, Chloé for Kids, Armani Junior, Moncler, and similar designer togs. Be prepared to brave the crowds, especially on weekends.
