    Harrod's: top class shopping Harrod's

    by gwened Written Dec 21, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the essence of British caché a la part with the Galeries Lafayette/Au Printemps of Paris.

    Harrod's is an institution here from high fashion to the best gourmet/gourmand displays of food. You must come to see it at least.

    The store is open Monday-Saturday from 10h to 21h, Sundays from 11h30 to 18H (browsing only allow from 11h30 to 12H). The Ladurée restaurant is open from Monday to Saturday 9h to 21h, and Sunday from 11h30 to 18h30

    and Inside these are the rules
    Refrain from wearing clothing which may reveal intimate parts of the body, or which portrays offensive pictures or writing.
    Refrain from wearing crash helmets in the store.
    Carry small rucksacks in your hand or on your front rather than on your back or shoulder. This is both to prevent damage to displays and for the comfort of all our customers. Harrods provides a left luggage service where large bags and rucksacks can be left for a small cost.
    Refrain from eating and drinking, except in our cafés and restaurants. There are over 30 eateries in-store. View restaurants »
    Refrain from taking photos in any of the Jewellery departments, Banking Hall, and the Safe Deposit or at the request of security personnel.
    Please note unaccompanied children under the age of 15 will not be granted permission to enter the store.

    a bit of history
    The Gallery has a right-of-way terrain of 18 225 square meters and a sales area of 92,000 m2 on 7 levels, making it the largest "Department Store" of London.
    The Harrods motto "Omnia omnibus Ubique" ("everything, everywhere, for all").
    Harrod's is the official supplier of uniforms for students of the most prestigious schools: Alton Convent, Claires Court, Kew Green, Kings Court, Parkgate House, Ravenscourt Park, Mulberry House and Queenswood.

    The Al-Fayed family which in 1985 had taken control of House of Frasers, corporation that owned Harrods (London), then by buying back the securities listed on the London Stock Exchange for £ 615 million. In 1994, the store is disassociated from the Group House of Frasers and shares of the latter are sold on the market. Harrods Lmd, the company having and exploiting Harrods (London), was created and was wholly owned by Al-Fayed through the Harrods-Holding family.
    May 8, 2010, the Harrods group was sold by Mr. Al-Fayed to Qatar Holding, a subsidiary of the sovereign wealth Fund of the State of Qatar, Qatar Investment Authority through the Bank Lazard .

    What to buy: we have come for clothing and food items, prices to match the quality you are buying. This is tops.

    What to pay: top prices for top items, the best.

    CARPHONE WAREHOUSE: CHEAP CELLPHONES

    by davidjo Written Jan 21, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Carphone Warehouse is a chain of stores that offer cellphones in most high streets. Usually you can buy the cheapest pay-as-you-go for around £10 + £10 load. Other phones are on offer that are tied up to different networks but if you are here just for a few weeks as a tourist the cheap one will suffice.

    Food and Drink: picnic by Hyde Park

    by gwened Written Aug 14, 2012

    I will vote for Hyde Park by the Serpentine lake, Italian gardens. When I go there with the family ,we buy at TESCO and then take it wherever for picnics there.

    http://www.tesco.com/storeLocator/
    the store is in kensington,which for us is good because I go in by car and they have parking garage too.

    However you can take the tube from there by Earls Court to Knightbridge

    mind you ,there is a lot of small food groceries stores along Earls Court and Kensington road.

    Hope it helps

    What to buy: food items for a picnic or eat out on your own with full service store

    What to pay: best prices

    The Body Shop: Treat yourself at the Body Shop

    by purplekedi Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We all know "The Body Shop" and most of us have at least one in a major city in our countries. I know that we have it here, but it's just so expensive! I know it's like that in most places. So, while you're in London, stock up!

    You will find from everything necessary in your daily life to some luxurious items. It's a haven for hair & skin care products and everything smells wonderful!

    What to buy: Accesories, fragrances for you and for home, make up, haircare, suncare and skincare products as well as products for your well being. They have a wide ange of products for men too, especially for those with sensitive skin. Ty the after shave products, trust me!

    What to pay: If it's a sale time, you can save a lot! Expect to pay about 15 GBP for a body butter, however, if you buy those boxes with body lotion, shower gel and whatever, you will save much more.

    Treat urself at The Body Shop!

    Pitsea Market and others: East end and Essex market culture

    by sourbugger Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From Sourbugger's Basildon page :

    'fell off the back of a van' mate,
    ...'fire damaged stock' mate.

    Many people in Essex originally come from the East End of London. They may have been seeking a better life in the green fields of Essex, but the Market trader philosophy came with them.

    Places like Pitsea Market are where you can really participate in the 'lifeforce' of local people. The market operates with about 200 stalls, 4 days a week in the centre of Pitsea's shopping area. Full details are available from the listed website.

    Even the operators have few pretensions and use a mock-up to Del and Rodney's Robin Reliant three-wheeler (from the classic British Comedy 'Only fools and Horses') with 'Pitsea Market' on the side to help publicise the place.

    You won't find any tourists here, and thus no stalls aimed at tourists, but if you anything from DVD's to Cauliflowers, then this is your place.

    As an alternative, visit one of the vast 'boot sales' that operate at the weekend, just look out for signs on the A127, or elsewhere, directing you to some sodden field where you can purchase the contents of someone else's garage.

    Only fools and horses...eh ?

    Thornton's: Scrummy chocolate.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lots of towns have a 'Thornton's' shop .....they make excellent chocolates which aren't too expensive. Look out for bags of 'mis-shapes'....they may not be the perfect shape but they taste just as good and cost less!

    by Penelope4 Updated Jan 9, 2011

    I liked the window display and I told myself that I will buy me some nice notebooks from that shop and I did the next time I passed by that place. Later I found out that Paperchase is a chain store where one can find office supplies, cards, art and craft, etc.

    What to buy: Stationery, kids stuffs for school, etc

    What to pay: Average price, I guess.

    PADDINGTON BEAR(S)

    by DAO Updated Jan 5, 2011

    What to buy:

    PLEASE TAKE OF THIS BEAR.

    That’s the label each of these bears comes with. Do I look like a Zoo Keeper or some sort of wildlife foster parent? A toy for children that begs is absolutely wrong in my humble opinion. In fact ‘Paddy’ isn’t just asking for some spare change. He is asking to be housed, cloth, fed and educated to University level. Yeah, just throw in a car at the appropriate age, telephone bills and the high cost of honey. Disgusting!

    You can find this little anti-social outcast at – you guessed it – shops in Paddington Station (Tube and Train). I really think I need to ask. If his Mum didn’t want him, do you really want an anti-social bear cub that will grow to 1.5 to 1.8 meters (% to 6 ft) tall and weigh 130 – 200 kilograms (286 – 440 lb) in your house? And you think human teenagers throw fits. Wait until you see damage on a Biblical scale in your house in a few years.

    Then there is the whole immigration issue. Paddy here is from Peru with NO DOCUMENTS! Passport? Immunization. So if your neighbours report you to the authorities you will be harbouring an under-age illegal immigrant with possible contagious skin issues. Not good. In fact you will need a very expensive solicitor.

    By the way the pictures are of one I bought at Paddington. And promptly shipped off to a niece with a bigger house and an ex-Sister-in-Law I hate. Let her clean up the bear poop in one of her 2 living rooms.

    If you still want one, follow the link below.

    You were warned.

    Various.: Buying memorycards (gosh, how times do move on!)

    by leics Written Oct 11, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Memorycards are found in lots of shops, but are always going to be cheapest from a supermarket. If you can find a biggish branch of Asda, Tesco, Morrissons and so on you will probably find they have a range of cameras and camera accessories available (not all own-brand). This is also the cheapest place to get rechargeable batteries.

    Otherwise, try chainstores such as Dixons, Comet or Boots the chemist (larger branches of the latter). They'll stock rechargeable batteries as well as memorycards etc, but may not carry all types of specialist camera battery.

    Buying memorycards (or batteries) from a specialist photography store will always be the most expensive option.

    What to pay: Depends on card size/type, but from 5GBP upwards in supermarkets as of October 2008.

    High Street, England: you'll get a card somewhere!
