Harrods is one of the most famous shopping center, with several designer brands, things you can’t afford if you’re a commoner like me…or you. And all the people I know. Probably the same for you. Anyway. It’s the equivalent of our French Galerie Lafayette I suppose.
It goes on several levels, the Egyptian stairs are designed like a museum, with a singer on top of it. A singer. In a staircase. How fancy is that?
Ladies and Gents I present to you: the stairs!
Even the toilets are worth visiting, it’s bigger than my previous appartment. I would have stolen samples if i could, like the ones everyone takes at the hotel. This was almost too fancy for me.. xD
And because I always walk with a hair straightener in my purse, I can stop by the toilets to fix my makeup AND my hair! \o/
Or vacuum the place if I have a sudden urge to clean! How thoughtful :D
The main attraction for us was the Disney store, located next to a cafe where you probably pay 10£ an espresso, and to the Bibiddi bobiddi Boutique, where you can dress up your little girl as her favourite Disney Princess for the modest sum of 1000£.
And no, I didn’t make any mistake when writting down the price. Magic comes with a price, everybody knows that, ask Regina or Rumplestinskin.
The store in itself is great, it’s quite big with exclusive products designed by and for Harrods. It’s the first Disney Store I’ve seen where you can take pictures! We had a chat with one of the sales assistant, very nice lady and snap a picture with Anna. Not me but almost.
And finally the Pets Empire. With a pet saloon included. You can buy clothes and biscuits for you pet. Fancier than the one I can afford at Tesco. I would eat those cookies instead of giving it to my cat. Oh yeah.
Found a Sherlock plushie!
But back to the toys area. It’s brilliant.
Seriously, I can’t even criticize it, I loved it, you can find anything you want, you have areas where you can sit and rest, huge teddy bears to snap pictures with,
Doctor Who and Avengers,
Batman and My Little Pony,
Yup, you can find both Batmant AND One Direction…I was not expecting that!
And I was definitely NOT expecting this.
and the Fairytale version of Monster High,
goodies from the Hobbit and Harry Potter, a library…
Look at all the goods I can’t buy!
We spent a lot of time here, it’s worth it. Well played Harrods, well played.
In Kensington Gardens, when walking along the Serpentine and the road that separate Kensington Gardens from Hyde Park, well hidden next to the italian fountain, you can find The Peter Pan Statue. That’s about it. I mean we were tired and had been walking all day so yeah…
Have a look at the full album, there’s a lot of funny pictures in it and even a squirrel. Don’t laugh it took me 10 minutes to snap this picture, it’s worth mentionning.
