No introduction needed! 

There are a million reasons why London is the ultimate city escape destination to celebrate the Xmas holidays.  Harrods always make the trip to London more enjoyable especially during the festive season. 

Every time I am more impressed by the creative window displays.. but Harrods is a destination on its own.

Located in the prestigious Knightsbridge has 330 departments covering one million square feet of retail space.

Harrods founder Charles Henry Harrod first established in 1824. In 1985 was purchased by the Fayed brothers who drove Harrods to the 21st century successfully. Since May 2010 Harrods is part of the Qatar Holdings and continues its great success story.

Harrods is the undeniable landmark of London. Apart from the branded clothes, the visitors can shop food & vine. Indulge in the Oyster Bar or in the Champagne bar.

The 2015 theme is Cinderella and Harrods just revealed the story on the window display !

 

A story with a happy ending ! Merry Christmas everyone!
