Unless you are a Londoner, you are unlikely to have heard of Hans Crescent. If there is a mention of Knightsbridge tube station however or, better still, Harrods Department store, most people will know what we are talking about.
The area, one of London’s wealthiest, is known to aeveryone because Harrods, aside from being a luxurious department store, has become an icon of the English capital and a tourist attraction in its own right.
Shoppers, as well as sightseers, cram the 7-floor 93,000 square metres to immerse themselves in the Harrods experience whether it is to try on a priceless wristwatch or give in to temptation at one of its gastronomical counters where they can taste any delicacy under the sun. For those who wish to pay their respects to Lady Diana and Dodi Al-Fayed, their shrine is located in the store.
HLondra – Hans Crescent
Hans Crescent Harrods London
Hans Crescent is the pedestrian area intersecting Brompton Road where the VIP entrance is to be found. You cannot miss it because it is always crowded. Luxury cars are constantly pulling up to drop off Harrods’ “real customers”.
Who knows how many people and cars have traversed our Prima Porphyry. Our stone was chosen for this site having taken into consideration the average daily number of visitors during the sales season which reaches peaks of 250,000 people!
Choosing which material to use for the paving of this area was hard. A beautiful, elegant, strong and durable stone was needed.
Prima Porphyry was everybody’s choice.
Have you ever been to London? For sure you’ve been at Harrods’ and you’ve walked on our Prima Porphyry!
