City of london markets
Famous clothing stores in london
In December 1883 Harrods was the victim of a major fire and collapsed. Soon after, the building was rebuilt on a larger scale. Currently the owner of Harrods is the Egyptian Mohamed Al Fayed.
As a tourist visit, Harrods offers a luxurious decoration with statues, fountains and rooms decorated with different motifs. Special mention should be made of the Egyptian room and the memorials to Diana of Wales.
Harrods is one of the most luxurious shopping centers in the world and, therefore, their prices are quite high in general. Many tourists choose to buy as gifts or souvenirs jars of tea, stuffed animals, chocolates or other inexpensive items.
What is the name of the most famous store in London?
Harrods is London's most renowned shopping center.
It is located in Brompton Road, in the district of Knightsbridge, very close to Hyde Park. The origins of Harrods date back to 1834, when Charles Henry Harrod opened a small grocery store.
What are the London flea markets called?
Spitalfields, Brick Lane and Petticoat Lane Market. These 3 markets I have grouped them together because they are practically next to each other, and if you visit one you can approach the other two without problems if you want. Spitalfields Market is huge, with stalls of everything you can imagine and numerous places to eat.

The City of London combines the modern, the avant-garde with the most ancient history, a guided tour is ideal in this area of the city, where there are very interesting places to discover and listen to its history. I recommend:1- Tower of London BridgeThe Tower of London Bridge is one of the symbols of the city, not to be confused with London Bridge, which is located a few meters upstream.It is a movable, Victorian style suspension bridge built in 1894 with two imposing towers 65m high and a system to facilitate the transit of boats on the Thames.
The Tower Bridge is one of the most photographed bridges in the world, I recommend for a different photo walk down the side street called Horsleydown steps on the south side of the river.
