Monolithic all-in-one department store extravanza
Built in 1883 by a business established in 1824, Harrods provides a mammouth shopping adventure across more than 300 departments, with nearly every facet of human existence catered for in some product or consumer form. The meandering ground-floor food halls perhaps define the store as a tourist destination, as do the suitably high-profile summer and January sales. Owned since 1985 by Mohamed Al-Fayed (father of Dodi, who in 1997 died with Diana, Princess of Wales in the Paris car crash), the store is not without its detractors, but the pull of the place is undeniable.
