Harvey Nichols

Things to do in London | Harvey Nichols

Release your inner Edina and Patsy and get a taste of the Ab Fab lifestyle for yourself by paying a visit to luxury department store Harvey Nichols. While Harrods and Selfridges may be chock full of tourists, this Knightsbridge landmark is noticeably quieter, probably because it attracts a more discerning crowd all of whom come here to lunch, shop and get a quick blow-dry. There’s cutting-edge fashion next to accessible, everyday brands, while foodies will love the surprisingly affordable food hall. The Fifth Floor restaurants are more pricey, but they’re excellent - in fact, the cafe was a favourite of the late Princess Diana. Don’t forget that after you’ve shopped (and eaten) until you’ve dropped, our hotel near Harvey Nichols is just a stone’s throw away and its comfy beds make the perfect place to rest up.
