    Large collection of eclectic music... A must if you have a turntable and lots of money as famous records cost upwards of £25.

    Very cool old skool record shop. But not the best on the planet - that would be Amoeba in LA!

  • GabyO

    If you stay for coffee make sure you get one of the shortbreads they have in a jar by the counter, delish...

    Look out for album launch-related gigs - get your wristband when you by the album, it's easier to get in that way. Read more
