It's fine to pop in for a look if you're passing nearby but I wouldn't recommend making it a destination or highlight of your trip if you have kids. Prices aren't cheap and there was nothing extraordinary on the shelves that you couldn't buy in your hometown or online (for better price no doubt). London has so much to offer,... More

A good place to have a look round at many many toys, but don't expect to get a good deal on anything - you pay a premium here for the name. We decided to buy something for our toddler, we accepted the high price, but on getting to the till we were then bombarded by the assistant trying to sell... More

If you have kids, nephews, nieces, a young child you care for or if you're just a child yourself, you should go visit Hamleys and get some toys. There's some decent sales on random stuff, but there's a good amount of Hamlets-Special things as well as some "London" things as a souvenir for those back home. There's multiple floors of... More

A lot of the staff were dressed up and performing or demonstrating toys, magic and arts and crafts. If money was not an issue, I would have walked out with a lot more bags than I actually did ! The store sells toys that are new to the market and gives great ideas for future presents. Unfortunately, a couple of... More

So much to choose from! Only go if you have time to spare. We spent over an hour just looking at everything! One of the most amazing toy stores I've ever visited. It is comparable to FAO Schwartz in the States. Highly recommend! You will not leave empty handed; for kids, friends or even yourself :)

This place is amazing. 7 storeys with all kind of cool toys. I spent entire day here. Who doesn't like toy? The staffs are superb helpful and hyper. We had so much of fun and highly recommended. Price are reasonable and lots of promotion. When you step in here, you entered into a different world. Put everything aside, let's have... More

For those who are searching a good, unique and quality toy for your children or family, this is the best store to visit. Even you can find one for yourself as it also got collector items. Believe me it can take you a whole day just to be in the store as it got 7 floors with their own categories... More

We took our children ages 9 and 5 to Hamleys this past December during our Christmas vacation in London. We knew that it was a must do thing with children when one is in London. We rather foolishly decided that we'd take them on December 23rd, the place was absolute mayhem! Stressed out parents and overjoyed and hyper children. We... More

The sheer variety of toys available here means that any child will love to spend hours looking, playing, and wanting to leave with arms laden. Beware, it is very busy, and very crowded.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
