Default Shops in London??

Mods, If this is in the wrong forum, please accept my apologies and help move it to the right place.

I'm trying to find more information about RC shops in London. I am visiting end July and have a day to burn there so I thought of visiting some London RC shops but have no clue where to start.

Any kind soul out there who knows a good reputable RC shop that sell at reasonable prices?

Thanks in advance to all....

Like twice the prize of what you have in the US and Asia. Dont bother shopping for parts in Europe, way to expensive (and i'm european).

Not a good idea Mate saying you that as a Londoner...
We usually want to go shopping to US ,Japan or hong kong but if you want to come and spend your cash in London be ready to pay $100 worth stuff 120 Pounds which is around $240...

hang on we dont know where this guy is from. If you are from the states or US dont bother way to expensive

if it is a good alternative to shop in london for you then check out DMS racing (should easily find there website) well sotcked in all aspects of the hobby not really in london but maybe worth the short trip. I dont think there are any decent model shops in the city

Thanks...I'm actually from asia. But I'm actually looking for old, out of production stuff. I'm aware that prices in Europe are pretty steep but if there are hobby shops there that carry some vintage kyosho or tamiya cars/parts, I'd like to take a look. Things maybe too expensive to buy but I could at least spend some time there to look around and enjoy the trip.

thanks!

Thats a good point bony
Sorry Mate
So You may try quick look at Al's hobby shop Which is very close to Central London Camden Town Tube station...That maybe the best adress thats a quite small shop but not many located in London...
If you can Try FTQ models in essex but not far away from London you should got to Liverpool street take the train to shenfield Getoff the train At Ilford station...For the full adress try their websites...

I was there a few weeks ago.. actually found Tamiya cars being sold at Harrods! Hah.. of course the grasshopper and TT-01 kit were being sold for 149 POUNDS .. and collecting dust in the corner were a few bags of TA-03 spare parts!

Keeping their stock current, I see..
