It has always puzzled me how a department store has become one of London's most famous tourist attractions. There is no denying it is a one off with a historic facade, premium products and legendary boxing day sales but I have always thought it a little pretentious. That is until I went for afternoon tea there (a friend received a gift certificate and chose to take me!) and realised it is all a good bit of fun and had a rather tasty experience.

Normal price is £29 per person so my best tip is to book online before you go and look out for discount and deals. On a side note, after a quick investigation it seems vouchers, and discount deals are everywhere online if you take the time to search a little, so it is well worth looking out for deals to save you a bit of money. As long as you don't find it too shameful handing over a voucher at Harrods… Dahhling purrlease.

If you want to feel like the Royal Family and do something quintessentially British then Harrods' Georgian Restaurant is well worth a visit and is among London's finest, located on the fourth floor of the five floor department store. A live pianist even performs every Saturday and Sunday.

Afternoon tea is served from 12.30pm with a selection of freshly made sandwiches, scones, pastries and patisserie and a vast array of specialty teas from Harrods private tea gardens. My favourite was apple and cinnamon and frangipane sponge.
