I´m going today to Edimburgh, and next week to London. Any suggestions about a good boardgame store in these cities?

Leisure games is the best In London by far. Orc's nest has a fair selection and Playing Games range is OK but, not as good as it used to be. Whilst Orc's nest and Playing Games are in central London i recommend a trip to Finchley (15 minutes from the centre of town on the Northern Line). I would estimate they have, at least, five times as much space dedicated to board games as the others combined - if looking for rarer or more obscure titles you are likely to find them at Leisure Games. Price wise they are all pretty similar.

Enjoy your visit to London!

Playin' Games doesn't seem to have had any new stock in for ages. I went in the other week and nothing had changed since Feb when I last went. Very disappointing but I suppose the people want monopoly . Worth popping in though if you are going to the British Musuem.

Orcs Nest off Charing Cross Road London
Excellent for RPG, CCGs and an increasing amount of Euro and War games.

Guy on the till actually makes Moulds for soldiers/figures while you shop.

First I want to thanks all you for the help and attention.
Yesterday I came back to Brazil . It was a very good trip, which I really enjoyed!
My time was short, and unfortunately I had the opportunity to look after boardgames stores only in London. There I went to “Playing Games” and “Orcs Nest”, and at “Playing Games” I bought Hera and Zeus (not a rarity, but a game that I was looking for and easy to bring back), Ingenious Travel Edition, and I found The Mosquito, expansion to Hive! That was a great acquisition!!! thumbsup
Next time I will try the other stores.
Best regards
