^ What they said.

Blackmarket
Phonica
Sister Ray
Music & Video Exchange
HMV (Oxford Street)

All literally within 5 minutes of each other.

It's worth checking the big HMV near there aswell man.
Doesn't stock vinyl anymore unfortunately.

Sister Ray, BM Soho and Reckless records are the ones to check out. Music Exchange can be good too.

Bare in mind this is only in central London.

Edit: Pretty much just echoed what everyone else said. :p

Yep basically anything on Berwick street, Sister ray is by far the best, BM Soho is good but all records are kept behind the counter which is annoying, plenty of good record shops round that area.

In Central London I go to Sister Ray or BM.

I rate Sister Ray a lot more than BM, much larger selection, including old and fresh tunes.

Also Revival/Reckless Records on the same street as Sister Ray, second hand vinyl, but you can pick up a few gems in there for a fraction of the price.

If you're located nearer South-West London, Banquet Records in Kingston has a huge section dedicated to dnb and the selection of vinyl browses all genres.

Banquet records in south west, much better than any of the above stated. Also when did Oxford street HMV stop sellin vinyl. As far as I am aware they still have it, just moved it to the left back wall

The main one on Oxford street dumped all it's vinyl and replaced them with heavy metal merch about six months ago...

Unless they moved them upstairs which I doubt.

music video exchange. Theres ones in notting hill and camden, both near the tube stations. They are usually pretty well stocked with the latest stuff and some gems. Picked up Aftermath Essential Rewindz (aka messiah) for under a tenna from the notting hill one not long ago.
