Hamleys is a place I have never visited in London before so it was really nice when we stumbled upon it on our visit! It was like stepping into a time machine and becoming a massive child all over again the floors of toys went on forever! Being the big kids that we are we decided to head to the... More

I was threatened not to buy anything else for my nephews otherwise there would be repercussions...I will now have to deal with the consequences because I walked out with £120 worth of goodies for my nephews. I... More

This covers the toys you need. Period. Multiple stores packed with major labels and the prices ain't so bad either. There are lot's of people just showing certain toys or gadgets and make people interested of them. This is how you get the job done.

I remember visiting this store when I was young. Now with a son of my own I just couldn't resist going to buy him gifts for his birthday and Christmas. This is a place that lives on its reputation. Some of the toys are more expensive than other stores. Some of the demonstrators were singing loudly and spoiled the visit.

We went for a family day out in London and both kids adore the Hamley's experience. There is absolutely something for everyone - Harry Potter, Game, Nerf Guns, Build a Bear, Nail varnish displays, books, sweets. You can easily spend two hours in store. A great day out for the family. Only challenge is avoiding spending too much money.

Went with family members to celebrate 6-year-old great nephew's birthday. Haven't been to Hamley's for years and it certainly lived up to expectations. A very noisy place, with very exuberant young staff, all trying to outdo each other, promoting their specific product. The birthday boy loved it! Around the entrance it was pretty manic, so the best plan is to... More

Took our daughter on a recent visit to London. Store was very busy at the time of our visit. Daughter wanted to look at the Lego section, but was disappointed at the small selection that is set aside for young girls.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
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.
