For the Christmas celebrations, the department store unveils “The Harrods Express”, a train leaving for the land of Christmas presents! Each car is decorated and presents the latest ready-to-wear, accessories and beauty collections in comical, funny and festive situations.
Among the books, like in a beautiful children library, little scenes tell the story of the dragon lighting the stove fire or the beaver cutting down trees but really unveils the magic of Christmas.
