The lower ground floor in Harrods is the location of the 2021 Harrods Christmas Department or 'Christmas World' as the luxury London store calls it.
The decor of the place is stunning and full of festive cheer, plus, the range of products is excellent and every day they add more items to the range of stuff you can buy to make your Christmas one to remember.
Shoppers and tourists are greeted at the door with a print announcing the location of the Christmas World department, so there is no chance of missing it. As you descend down the escalator, you are greeted by doorways bordered with Christmas lights inviting you to enter the wonderful world of festive shopping.
If you've experienced the delights of the festive season how the country's best-known store does it, you will know that there's nothing quite like a Harrods Christmas. Shoppers are treated to everything from the festive Food Hall delights to unimaginable gifts that you will struggle to find anywhere else.
Christmas Decorations & Festive Food
The first thing that pops out at you when you arrive in the Christmas World is the copious amounts of Christmas decorations. For most people, these are the only affordable items that will land inside shopping baskets. If you have a bit more cash to splash, then you must pick up something sweet from the Christmas food hall, such as mouth-watering mince pies, Christmas puddings, and lots of new and surprising treats released throughout the festive shopping period.
Pass through these doors surrounded by fairy lights and you're in a world of festive fun.
It's true that the vast majority of items in the 330 departments spread over 7 floors is out of the price range of the ordinary shopper but there are little affordable gems you can pick up in the Christmas shop and food halls. After all, their motto is 'Omnia Omnibus Ubique' which means 'All Things for All People, Everywhere'.
How busy is Harrods at Christmas
If some of the predictions are to be believed, Christmas 2021 is going to be one of the biggest and busiest in recent times. After a washout festive season in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, studies have shown that consumers are not only optimistic about 2021 but they are also determined to spend more and make this Christmas better than ever.
As a result, shops like Harrods with its 90,000 sq m of space is gearing up to receive a vast number of shoppers. In 2020, over 15 million people visited the Knightsbridge store with over 300,000 visitors on the busiest days.
If you are determined to get something nice, it is wise to put a date in the diary to get down there early in December so that you don't miss the best bits or have to fight off other shoppers.
Christmas decorations are a must by for anyone visiting the Harrods Christmas World store. Everything from Christmas trees to Baubles, cards and more.
Gifts at Harrords
If you are in the generous mood or are one of those UK consumers polled who said they will be spending more this Christmas, you can't go wrong at Harrods.
They have gifts for every kind of person and if you can't decide on what to buy for the impossible person to buy for, they have options for you, such as their made to order cakes, that are limited only by your imagination (and bank balance of course).
Harrods Experiences, including breakfast at The Tiffany Blue Box Cafe to dazzling cocktails at Baccarat Bar are excellent options to gift someone an experience that will be cherished for a lifetime. You can also gift that someone special with a day of relaxation, including beauty treatments, with Champagne in hand, or afternoon tea for two in the world famous Harrods Tea Rooms. For something a bit meatier, gift someone with a dining experience for two at Gordon Ramsay Burger.
