Harrods History

Harrods London food history goes back to the year 1849 when the Harrods founder Charles Henry Harrod opened up a small Harrods grocery store selling tea and groceries. This Harrods shop is was located at 105 Brompton Road in the underdeveloped area of Knightsbridge.  He later sold it to his son Charles Digby Harrod where the Harrods store expanded to 101 and 103 Brompton Road.  Harrods Knightsbridge prospered when the area began to attract the wealthy of London.  However, when the Harrods Brompton Road was destroyed by a fire in 1883, a new store was built in 1884 at Humphrey’s Hall in Knightsbridge.  Therefore, as you see, Harrods London England originally was all about the food!

The owners of Harrods have switched hands a few times since Charles Digby Harrod retired in 1889.  Including the shares being with the London Stock Exchange, Fayed Brothers and now the Qatar Investment Authority.
