There are 2 More I know of :

Orcs Nest : http://www.orcsnest.com/

Lesiure Games : http://www.leisuregames.com/

There is also Forbidden Planet : http://www.forbiddenplanet.com/WhereWeAre.html

But they tend to have a smaller collection of Boardgames than the other 2.

Frag. Out.

Sure this is stickied somewhere in the forums, but Orc's nest is just off Cambridge Circus and has a good selection.

Otherwise there is Leisure Games, who have a great selection, but they aren't very central (zone 5 ?)

Nope, sorry, none at all
j/k

Google can sometimes help:

I just went to google maps and typed London Game Store, you may need to click on various ones to make sure they sell board games (or call them).

Interestingly none of those businesses brought up in the google search (above) are boardgame shops (unless you count Games Workshop or the very tiny selection in the horribly overcrowded Hamleys).

Nick's comments above are spot on - those are the three or four main options if you're in Central London.
