      24-25 Wells St, London, W1T 3PH

      This stockist of leather-, rubber- and fetishwear – and specialist BDSM equipment – is legendary on the scene. There are stores in Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Manchester, Paris and Zurich – with the London outpost just off Oxford Street. Whether you’re into breathplay, medical implements, neoprene or cock-and-ball torture, you’ll find the necessary kit here – along with attentive customer service. Read more

  • Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium

    57 Hoxton Square, London, N1 6PD

    The UK’s first sex shop run by women, for women was founded in 1992, and for the past two decades has been catering for the intimate needs of ladies in the capital through its website and the non-sleazy, women-only stores in Portobello and Hoxton. The trick when evaluating the strength of a vibrator, apparently, is to test it on the tip of your nose. Read more

  • Agent Provocateur

    6 Broadwick St, London, W1F 8HL

    Since opening this Soho shop, Agent Provocateur has become an international success story, with branches as far afield as New York, Moscow and Dubai. It's the first port of call for the decadent and fashion-forward lingerie fan. Read more

  • Coco de Mer

    23 Monmouth St, London, WC2H 9DD

    This erotic emporium is London's most glamorous introduction to kink. The boudoir aesthetic creates an unmistakable vibe of refined naughtiness, and trying items on is a particular highlight, what with the peepshow-style velvet changing rooms that allow your lover to watch you undress from a 'confession box' next door.

    55 Great Eastern St, London, EC2A 3HP

    This shop offers touch of decadent, old-school naughtiness and glamour in Shoreditch. Original lingerie designs by Damaris, Myla, Pussy Glamore and Buttress & Snatch swing off the rails alongside Australian swimwear label Jemma Jube and corsetry pieces by Miss Katie and Sian Hoffman. Read more

  • Freak Fetish

    Railway Arch 47B, South Lambeth Rd, London, SW8 1RH

    Pop in here to pick up a pair of leather chaps or open-crotch shorts, and you'll then be suitably attired to get past the discerning doormen at the Hoist club, right next door. Read more

  • Soho Original Books

    Brewer Street, London, W1F 0ED

    The first of this chain of shops was opened in 1993 on Brewer Street, with the intriguing concept of combining a bookshop with a sex store. That doesn’t just mean the books are about sex – you’ll find cookery tomes, art and architecture books and historical studies on the shelves – but it does mean that the sex bit downstairs is welcoming, brightly lit, and non-seedy.

Hi, thanks for the tips. I will be in Canary Wharf, anything closeby?


Erm, you are fogetting CLONEZONE! I have been shopping there for 15 years. Two big Adult shops in London, with a huge choice.


The best places for sexy retro lingerie and corsets in london has to be FairyGothMother in he east, or Whatkatiedid in the west, both have fabulous service too.


Ziggla on Fulham Road, has a wide range of erotic costume, fetish clothing and shoes, adult toys, novelties, and much more for men, women, and cross dressers.


Breathless on Kings Cross Road has a great range of Men's and Women's Latex Clothes. Plus it has the best changing rooms and friendliest staff.


It is strange to read a review of adult shops in London without a mention of Harmony on Oxford Street, the biggest and arguably the best.
