the prices are a bit high compared to Big Box retailers in teh US - but it is inner London where everything is pricier. Take you kids and they will enjoy getting lost - a good 1-2 hours of free entertainment, unless you succumb and have to buy them something (there are worse souvenirs for London) lots of demonstrations going...

My 11 year old daughter and I had a great time at the store. There are tons of demonstrations going on all the time and toys are buzzing around you as you walk by. It is an expensive place to shop but we did manage to buy some stuff. The place is huge and has something for everybody, young and... More

There is 5 floors packed with toys, the best part is all the staff that are demonstrating some of the toys, it was quite fun to watch. I was glad that I was there with teenagers who were more interested in watching and browsing than young children who would have asked to buy everything! Just outside there is a bus... More

I'm 30 and my husband is 41.. Still, we had an amazing time at this store... It is one of those places you don't see anymore:friendly staff showing the coolest toys and a change for the kids to try the toys instore. The place is huge and has the biggest playmobil section I've ever seen! Also, you can take pictures... More

Visited here with my partner toward the end of June 2014. Being very exited and always knowing of how it might be the world famous Hamleys toy store. Unfortunately it was a big disappointment. Due to the members of staff and the screaming crying children (due to being dragged away from the over priced toys). Walking around this building you... More

Very nice place to visit, however they have several sellers doing very nice presentations but some of them are fake. Be attention to the products that are presented by professional sellers.

Had to make a stop at Hamleys for our Son. What a fun store. We were there for the opening and they make a big to do out of it and wish kids Happy Birthday. We enjoyed all the staff doing demo's and playing with the toys. Hope to visit again some day!!
