So it turns out my friend is in London now and he says he could visit board game shop for me, but the thing is he don't know any.

He is at 73 Lambeth walk now and is planning to visit Trafalgar square. Are there any shops near?

Orcs Nest is in the west end.

http://www.orcsnest.com/

Not very big but a reasonable selection of Euros and Wargames upstairs.


Leisure Games is a bit out of town but still reachable by underground train.

http://www.leisuregames.com/

Lots and lots of games.

Orc's Nest is only a few minutes walk north from Trafalgar Square (up St. Martin's Place and then Charing Cross Road to the Palace Theatre and then turn right). It is expensive though (as any brick and mortar shop in London is!)

Actually sometimes cheaper than you think - or only a couple of quid more than online, which is offset by the great feeling of immediate ownership

Speaking as an ex-customer and now competitor, there are only three games shops in London: Leisure Games, Leisure Games and Leisure Games - with apologies to A. Blair (or may be no apologies given that the rumour is [sarcasm] that he was the MP for the constituency adjacent to where I live). [I know there should be no politics but he was widely known for his absence from the constituency.]

And where that "pick-up" would occur?
