    For clothes/ home etc- I hate it, I hate designer label worshipping and I hate the way women look at you in the fashion departments if you're not 'well' dressed however;
    For food - it's incredible, the food halls are amazing. Where I'm not bothered about clothes, I think good quality food is one of the nicest luxuries you can have and me and my boyfriend love just looking around at all the lovely treats you can get- some of the choccies are incredible!

    I like the food halls, especially the Krispy Kreme dougnuts. You can also get some nice exotic alcoholic drinks (vodkas etc) which is handy. I don't tend to buy clothes from Harrods... if you want designer stuff, it's probably better to head over to Bond Street etc anyway.

    If eating nice food brings you more pleasure than eating say tesco value food ("it tastes nicer") then there's nothing wrong with spending a bit more if you have it. Otherwise everybody wouldn't pay for Cadbury's chocolate, or would go for Rola Cola over Coca Cola.

    Krispy Kreme is my personal recommendation though - previously Harrods was the only place in the UK you could get them, but there's now a store (drive-through i think) in Enfield.

    You mean Krispy Crack donuts. Those things are evil and addictive. I'm glad I moved out of Enfield.

    They're priced just so that you can go halves on a box of 12 with a friend for £6.95. 6 each.

    Ah the deli. I like the roast beef sandwiches there, but like you say bloody expensive. What is cheeky though, is when you order a glass of cranberry juice for £2.50, and they pour out a small glass for you from the ocean spray carton right in front of you. :mad:

    There is a Krispy Kreme stand in Canary Wharf and also a Tesco Metro near/on Regent Street where you can get them.

    I have no idea how I've picked up this essential information.

    Harrods is great for browsing, deciding what you wanna buy and then going somewhere else and getting it for half the price. :p:
