Do you want to go shopping in London?
The Egyptian Mohammed Al-Fayed is the owner of Harrods and he spent a lot of money on the building. There are over 300 departments on seven floors, and 5000 staff from over 50 different countries. All year 11,500 light bulbs light up Harrods at night to make it one of the most famous sights in London.
The most expensive shoes in the world are in Harrods. They cost 1.6 million and they have a full-time security guard. They are made of precious metal and have 642 jewels! But you can’t wear what you want in Harrods. You can’t wear shorts or vest T-shirts, and you can’t carry your backpack on your back.
Harrods has a very famous winter sale. More than 300,000 shoppers come on the first day of the sales. Some people queue all night outside in the cold to get the best bargains.
