Hamleys and Harrods coming to MK


Two iconic London brands – Hamleys and Harrods – are both coming to Milton Keynes!

Both are opening soon at centre:mk, with Hamleys opening in time for Christmas while Harrods Beauty will be launching in February (hopefully in time for Valentines Day).




Hamleys is opening a pop-up festive store, offering toy demonstrations and exciting in-store appearances from much-loved characters.

‘The Finest Toy Shop In The World’ has been bringing smiles to children’s faces since 1760 and is considered a major tourist attraction on London’s Regent Street.

The firm was founded by William Hamley and has gone on to receive two royal warrants and delight generations of youngster over the years.

There are a dozen other Hamleys stores in the UK, as well as over a hundred worldwide.

Brands on offer will include LEGO, Barbie and Playmobil as well as Hamleys’ own exclusive toy collections.

It’s expected to be open from 2nd December.



Harrods Beauty

This new concept from the world-famous department store will be the company’s first venture into standalone beauty retail.

Milton Keynes has been selected as one of two locations in the UK for the new concept store – with the new MK outlet set to open in February 2021 in the unit previously occupied by House of Fraser.

Intu Lakeside, in Essex, is home to the firm’s other standalone beauty site.

The new Harrods Beauty store in Milton Keynes will feature premium and luxury beauty brands such as Huda Beauty, Dior and Chanel.

It will also offer services including blow-dries and facials, as well as a ‘coffee-to-cocktail’ bar.
