Harrods – 17 mins walk from QG
England’s most famous department store.

Its humble beginnings date back to 1849, when tea merchant Charles Henry Harrod opened a small grocery shop in the East End that emphasised impeccable service over value. Today, the store spans a 4.5 acre site in Knightsbridge and boasts a phenomenal range of products from pianos and cooking pans to pets and perfumery.
