What can I say about the 1,000,000 square foot, 330 department-filled department store Harrods? Overwhelming? Just a tad. High-end? I think that’s an understatement. Worth the trip? Yeah, probably. It’s a fairly beautiful sight. I mean, the place even has an art gallery and a fossil & crystal gallery. Oh, and a library, a wedding dress section, a chocolate bar, and pretty much every purse a woman could want.
I think their motto serves them pretty well: Omnia Omnibus Ubique—All Things for All People, Everywhere. Although, this mainly applies if you have a wad of cash in your wallet or are ready for a self-deserving splurge. I guess I wasn’t prepared for either, walking out with a mere £2.50 box of organic, fair trade tea.
Photo-taking was prohibited…but I managed to sneak a few in along my afternoon stroll through Harrods.
