This luxury department store has been a fixture in Knightsbridge since 1831. Home to desirable, cutting-edge brands, it is seen as one of the best shopping experiences in London. It is the sleeker, less hectic cousin to its rivals Harrods, Selfridges, and Liberty. The store itself is beautiful, with window displays rivalling anything at a carefully curated modern art gallery, and its “less-is-more” vibe makes it feel less chaotic and more luxurious. The food hall is also excellent, and a mid-afternoon glass of champagne in the chic fifth-floor bar is a very civilised and lavish part of the Harvey Nichols experience. You’ll find it located opposite Knightsbridge tube station so is easy to spot if you’re travelling via the underground. Although you could easily spend a whole day exploring its eight (yes eight!) floors, it is likely that you might have a bit of spare time to see what else this part of London has to offer. Notable nearby attractions include the store's biggest rival, Harrods. Just down the road from Harvey Nichols, it’s well worth a visit for, what some say, is an even more luxurious shopping experience! Or why not pay a visit to the V & A Museum to take in the world’s largest collection of arts and design objects. Hyde Park is also just a short walk away which has a host of activities and is home to the Serpentine Gallery.
