The history of Harrods

The history of Harrods

When Charles Henry Harrods opened his little grocery store in Knightsbridge, a small village near London, in 1849, he probably didn’t know it would become the worldwide known monument it is today. And what made the little store exploded was the Great Exhibition in 1851: the frequentation suddenly became huge, and the reputation of the services was the best advertising.

In 1894, it is Richard Burbridge that became the new director of the store and decided to redesign and rebuilt it entirely. Since its renovation, the building is one of the most visited attraction in London, and one of the best architecture in the city, thanks to its eighty thousands square meters of decorations.
