"Harrod's.The finest shop in..." London Tourist Trap Tip by shivan

London Tourist Traps: 435 reviews and 348 photos


The finest shop in London, possibly. Sited in Knightsbridge in a wonderful centuries-old building, this shop offers you everything you can imagine, maybe not spaceships.
Everything is presented in a lovely way. Everything is cared of by wise architects, artisans and hundreds of workers. It's like entering a museum. Where is the trap then? It's easy. PRICES! Absolutely ridiculous, even for the most humble things. Go there, have a look, take pics (if they let you do it), but don't buy anything unless you want to come back home by walking!
