Fellow gamers, I am in London for a couple of days with my childen and would like to visit a game store. Any recomendations?

I read some of the older posts, but as i dont know London well (first trip here..) i could need a bit more detailed info abouth locations

I will be staying in south kensington close to Natural museum and the Glouchester RD station.

My suggestion:

1. Catch the no.14 bus - this map might help
http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/gettingaround/maps/buses/pdf/south...
2. Get off at Charing Cross Road (may be signed as Cambridge Circus)
3. Walk to Orcsnest (www.orcsnest.com) [two minutes] It's small but densely packed and possibly the only boardgame shop in Central London
4. Walk to the Forbidden Planet [another 2 minutes] - assuming your children like robots and stuff (http://forbiddenplanet.com/)
5. Walk the British Museum [about another 5 minutes]

If you're here in the next 4 weeks expect some kind of Olympic game based disruption.

Quicker way to do it is hop on Piccadilly Line tube to Leicester Square from South Ken. You can then walk up Charing Cross Road for two minutes and you're at the blessed Cambridge Circus, home of Orcs Nest and Fopp. Heartily agree with the British Museum suggestion.

Thanks for the help folks.

I managed to find the Orchs nest Easy by your descriptions. Lots of boardgames available there (Even had a old ICE RPG book!)

Think they had a miniature gamer behind the desk (or maybe he just was tired from a long day) as he was a litle short on the boardgametalk.
