Harrods Seasonal Wine Collection Hamper - Review

Having recently been asked to review a hamper from Harrods and I chose their Seasonal Wine Collection Hamper.  Just as you would expect from Harrods, the hamper was perfect and an absolute delight to both receive and open.
    The packaging alone looks impressive, I won't be able to throw the box away as it's so nice!
Even a Christmas card was included.

Harrods of London - The Food Hall

 Harrods is Britain's most famous store and possibly the most famous store in the world.  So after my trip to Borough Market with one day travel card in hand I was off again on the underground to catch a tube to Knightsbridge.
Once at Knightsbridge, just follow the way out sign that says Brompton Road and when you get to the top of the stairs you'll be right next to an entrance to Harrods.  I realise there are a lot of photos here, but I don't think you'll find them boring.
 Just look at the ceiling and chandelier - what an amazing fruit design.



 
The large haggis to the left of this picture below was £45.00
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  


 
 Of course you can eat there too at one of many bars - this isThe Sea Grill.
 



Take the lift or escalator to the lower ground floor.

And you'll find a memorial to Princess Diana and Dodi.
Can you see the two wine glasses in the picture?  They remain unwashed and were found in their hotel room the night they were both very sadly killed.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures, I can never go to London without a visit to Harrods.

My Trip to London's Famous Borough Market

So, I was in London and with just over four hours till my train, my first thought was Borough Market here I come!  After turning right out of Carnaby Street and a short walk down Regents Street there I was at Oxford Street station.  I headed straight for the ticket booth and £6.60 got me an underground ticket for zones 1 and 2 - all you really need to have a great time in London and to see the major sights.  You need London Bridge station and when you come out (following the signs for Borough High Street) you'll see it to the left a bit, but more or less opposite the station entrance - simples!
After my trip to the market I was straight back on the London underground and off to Harrods!  
I love Harrods - see my post on Harrods Food Hall.  No trip to London is complete without a visit to see how the over half live!........Boston Terrier puppies were for sale in their pet department for a mere £2500........
  Here are a few pictures in no particular order of Borough Market:
As you will see a fantastic range of fresh produce, fish, meat and more.  There's not much you won't find at this market in the way of food - all sorts of weird and wonderful things to be found.















 If you're ever in London it's well worth a visit!

My Trip to London

Last Monday was a rather grey day in London - as you can see the weather wasn't too nice at all!
So I went on the train to London ready for the Television studios the next day. I can't mention which studios or the name of the programme either! Sorry to be all mysterious but we are not allowed to chat too much about it as it's a brand new cooking programme showing in a few months time.
We all stayed in a hotel that is inside the building to the left of the London Eye, you can see it in the picture above, so we were in a really good central place.
Seeing as I've discovered this amazing video thing on here you can see my video of what happened at the very bottom of this post!
I had a fine time - one day London travel pass in hand, I trundled off to Harrods!
I thought I'd share a few pictures with you for anyone that has never been there.


Harrods is huge - you can get lost in there. I headed straight for the food hall as you do.
Loads of different cheese's from just about everywhere were on sale.

The ceiling is amazing - it's different in each part of the food hall.
All different kinds of coffee are sold.
I love looking at all the 'fancy' food they have. The prices are quite fancy too!!
These lobster halves were actually not too bad in price considering this is Harrods they were £17.95 for each half.
Although a cauliflower was £3.95 compared with the normal 'everywhere else' price of around 89 to 99 pence! I shouldn't think I'd have made my cauliflower soup if I had to shop there! A baby gem lettuce was also £3.95 in Harrods.
Below: Lots of posh looking chocolates.
The Sushi bar - not sure on the prices here but I did notice a
small glass of white wine was £9.95
This Valentines chocolate heart (hollow) was a mere £150
........and nope Paul is not getting one!
Then I headed off to the pet department - no pictures of the animals cats, dogs, bunnies etc as photographs are quite rightly not allowed there.
The Egyptian stair case or escalator is used to get to the pet department.
I also stopped by the television department where you can buy a 70inch Television for the absolute bargain price of £30,000 - Yep 30 grand!!
Now this is a Cat Bed! A real bargain at £395.....not!
Also in pink for the same price - can't be bad eh?!
Later on we (our team of four people) met up to eat - I was in need of food!!
I must say the other team members are all really nice people and I'm really glad to have met them.


This was our starter - between three of us as one person couldn't get there early enough to eat with us. A right bargain that was as Monday night was 50% off all food! It's a pub chain called (much to my horror) 'The Slug and Lettuce' what a yucky name!
Now here's a very blurred picture (but you get the idea) of the London Eye
at night!
So, if you really feel the need, you can watch the 'Jan can talk for England'
version of what happened below!
