Christmas at Harrods


Roast those chestnuts, deck those halls, surf the internet for socks and scented candles. Christmas time is coming! 

One of the first places to remind us of this fact is Harrods. A classic. A Great British institution.

Believe it or not, Harrods' Christmas World actually launched back in July. It's a 2000 square foot space on the third floor filled with decorations, trees, advent calendars, stocking fillers and crackers. 

Yesterday I headed down for a look around. 


I bought a Harrods Advent Calendar (I didn't realise it was £25 until I got it to the till!) and some chocolate coins.

I took a wander down the escalators to the world famous Food Court on the Ground Floor.


And yes, it was me the cake man was serving. I had to buy myself one of these gorgeous little delights and I decided upon an Oreo cupcake. I bought Alex a salted caramel and chocolate slice.

Finally, I had to browse the bags and shoes before heading out into the rain outside.

It would have been rude not to!


Oh yes, I forgot to mention that I also popped into the pet department.

 A very fluffy little guy benefited from that visit.


Have a fantastic weekend guys!

  3. This post has got me so excited for everything Christmassy! Harrods is excellent at any time of year but their Christmas offerings just make them extra special and I'm glad to see that they get into the spirit of things so early. I wish I didn't live so far away! I shall have to console myself with looking forward to the Christmas markets which open up here at the end of next week :)

  7. My friend and I used to have a tradition of hitting Harrods Christmas Dept in the Summer as soon as it opened yet I haven't visited one yet this year - something to be rectified swiftly.
