Competition: win a £50 Harrods shopping voucher and cream tea!

If you go for a little walk from our hotel along Beaufort Gardens and round the corner onto Brompton Road, you can’t help but bump into the world’s favourite department store, Harrods.  And if you’re visiting in January you are likely to see the queue of shoppers waiting for the doors to open to the sale, which makes The Beaufort the ideal base from which to do some sale shopping in London.

With over 330 departments including one of the most comprehensive childrenswear departments and over 30 eateries, Harrods is the largest department store in Europe living up to its motto Omnia Omnibus UbiqueAll Things for All People, Everywhere. With so much to see our January Winter sale offer helps set you up for the day with a Continental breakfast served in your room each morning.


If by the afternoon you are all shopped out you can always head back to the hotel to take advantage of the complimentary afternoon Cream Tea available to all guests from 3pm-5pm with homemade scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream. You can also make use of the free WiFi to research the nearby London attractions, West End Shows or even the other nearby sales including Harvey Nichols and Selfridges, or enjoy the unlimited free drinks available from our bar (from 3pm-11pm).

  11. I’d like to say i’d spend it on something present related but i know i wouldn’t make it past the food court! Last time i went i tried a Macaroon and it was literally the best thing i’ve ever eaten so i’m sure a few would be making it into my basket!

  12. A nice little present for my American Daughter-in-law. She’ll be over the moon to receive something in a Harrods bag. Thanks

  13. I’d spend the £50 on some Touche Eclat as after having my son i’m always tired and need some great quality make-up to brighten me up.

  14. A Sebastian Christmas Bear as I have always wanted a Harrods bear. It is £24.95 so I could have one for me and one for my daughter 🙂

  15. I would buy make-up from the Chanel counter to ensure I look my best for my visit to The Beaufort Hotel for cream tea.

  16. Honestly?! An Alessi Blow-Up Fruit Bowl, which is the exact fruit bowl that Sherlock and Watson have in 221b Baker Street. Hardcore Sherlockian over here! ;D

  17. An expensive bottle of wine that I could open on my 50th Birthday next year instead of a cheap bottle from a supermarket.

  18. To treat my Husband to some sushi and champagne, as I’m unemployed and he provides and pays for everything.

  19. I would go to the food halls and have a great time. Perhaps treat myself to some of their fresh handmade choccies. Expensive but tasty as a treat!

  20. I would like the voucher to spend on a treat for my uni daughter. She never has any spare cash so this would be awesome x

  21. Harrods sells so many fab things it would be hard to choose just one. Maybe some of there delicious food from the food court

  22. After visiting Harrods amazing Pet shop I would definitely be spending all of the 50 pounds on my dog as I love him very much and want to spoil him for Christmas!


  24. I would buy some chocolates and biscuits for my wonderful husband who is working all Christmas and new year and even working on his birthday which is on new years eve.

  27. I would use it to treat myself after I get out of hospital, lots of nice food as the hospital food is awful here!

  28. I would refresh my make-up for the New Year – Bobbi Brown or Chanel would be a real treat. Merry Christmas all!

  29. If I was lucky enough to win and the voucher arrived before Christmas Eve would buy some Vintage Port & Stilton to round off our Christmas Day Festivities!

  30. I would spend it on a Christmas Bear so I could keep it as a keepsake of my visit and also a Harrid Bauble for my tree, I like to collect a one each year!

  31. I would buy two of the Christmas Bear’s for 2013, Sebastian. One for my brother and one for my boyfriend, they would love them!!

  32. I would have a shop in the glorious food hall and treat myself to something special for the family.

  33. My boyfriends left me so the biggest teddy I could get so Ive got something to cuddle over Christmas 🙁

    I would buy these fabulous Christmas gifts:

    Christmas dog Elle £12.95

    Christmas dog Bella £12.95

    Queen teddy bear £19.95

    Leaving £4.85 towards a cup of coffee in their cafe.

  35. I would buy Harrods 12 Year old malt Whisky and some Truffles and let my mother in law have an evening of fun. I will then film the resultant outcome and show the family. She is a good laugh and always memorable!

  36. We are having Christmas dinner over at my mum’s house this year. I’ve told mum not to worry about the dessert and that I bake something special. I’m starting to worry now, as I’ve not planned anything and hoping not to poison the family with my baking on Christmas day! I reckon this DIY gingerbread house decorating kit from Harrods might just be what I need!

  37. I would buy whatever takes my fancy on the day , more than likely perfume as I love smelling nice, as a mum of 4 I know I need to lose a bit of weight but perfume is not weight conscious, you don’t have to be a size 0 to smell amazing

  38. I would buy the Sebastian, the Harrods 2013 Christmas bear and a party dress as a gift for my niece to mark a special occasion when she was first old enough to appreciate christmas.

  39. Since my son had an German exchange student (4 years ago) we have continued to exchange Christmas cards and small gifts with the family. I usually try and buy something typically British (that is not available to buy in Germany), this is getting increasingly difficult. If I were lucky enough to win this year, I would buy something from Harrods to send to them.

  40. Well… my parents just bought my daughter an oboe for £1250, and they babysit our 3 kids twice a week – so they definitely deserve a little treat!

  41. I would buy a pair of warm, cosy Uggs to keep me warm through the bitterly cold winter that’s forecast. I think it’s started today, and I’m dreaming about those boots 🙂

    Lovely giveaway thank you – merry Xmas 🙂 x

  42. I’d buy a Harrod’s Teddy bear,
    Nice and cuddly with soft fur.
    I’d put it at the end of my bed,
    And when my granddaughter visits she can have it instead!

  43. I would take my daughter to see Santa as ive heard its the best santa in the country and only the best for my little lady.

    Reading the other comments it would have to be the food hall for me! something to share with hubby.
    yum yum

  46. Far-flung family means I usually spend Xmas alone and get presents in the post well before the day itself, so I always buy myself some posh chocs to open first thing on Xmas morning as my grown-up version of a selection box. Harrods is sure to have some wonderful chocolatey treats to enjoy.

  47. Go to the Food Hall and investigate all the different cheeses that I have never even seen let alone tasted before and taste and buy. A cheese-lovers dream!

  48. Posted to Twitter that I would love to be able to treat my friend when her baby comes with a keepsake. I will share the cream tea with my hubby.

  49. One of the Big cheese making kits. I’ve never seen them. I love cheese and this would turn a lovely prize into an even more exciting experience.

  50. If I were lucky enough to win I would enjoy splitting the voucher with my dear friend Joanne as sharing is twice the fun! I would be buying a selection of sweet treats from the food hall for my boys . Joanne likes the Harrods memorabilia as she is a London girl living in Wales.The cream tea would be a lovely chance to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

  51. I would treat myself to a Foot Massage at the Urban Retreat spa to give my feet a treat after all the Christmas shopping!

  55. I would spend it all on food – delicacies that we never normally have or whatever looks too tempting to resist on the day!

  56. I’d put it towards a hamper, to relive my childhood memory of my parents receiving one each year. It was always filled with lots of treats to bring a smile and festive cheer!

  60. The Harrods house money boxes, a bargain at 2 for twenty and as an added bonus there’s sweets inside a plenty.
    Classic Christmas Pudding With Brandy for £10.95 served with Brandy Butter With Courvoisier to bring the pud alive.
    A Chocolate Gingerbread Man and a Gigantic Jazzy just for me.
    And after buying all of that there’s still change of 20p

  61. I would absolutely LOVE to win this – it would be such a wonderful thing to do this winter! I would most definitely use the voucher to buy myself a laptop cover! I have had my laptop for a good couple of years now, however I’ve never found an attractive cover/case for it that was cheap enough to be able to justify buying one! If I were to win this Harrods voucher I could go up to London and really treat myself to the beautiful Marc Jacobs ‘Dreamy Logo Neoprene’ Laptop Case! I would be able to take my laptop away with me to places without my stomach flipping whenever my suitcase (complete with unprotected laptop inside) clips against a wall or bench or whatever other obstacle there is! It would be wonderful!! 🙂 Good luck everyone! Gabrielle xx

  62. I would use the voucher to update my old Harrods apron, tea towel and oven gloves.
    I love using Harrods homewares,
    they give my Kitchen and my Cooking that ‘Touch of Class’ that only Harrods can give.

  63. Oh my gosh i would so love to win this! it is my mum’s birthday on New Years Day and I am already taking her into London to see Dirty Dancing. Would be the icing on the cake to be able to treat her to tea and a Harrods trip. She has a Harrods plastic carrier and treaures it so to be able to treat her to something nice would be a dream come true.

  70. Harrods never ceases to amaze me! It’s just rooms and rooms of endless wonder!
