When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop,
they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined
tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And

10.45 on a Monday morning. It was not overcrowded. Quite civilised and they were holding back people who were trying to get in early. I would say early on a weekday.
