Both a tourist attraction, with regular school-holiday events for children (check the website), and a ginormous toy shop, Hamleys has all the must-have toys, attractively displayed to boot. Arranged on five noisy floors, with perky demonstrators showing off certain wares on every one, you’ll be lucky if you can spend less than an hour in here if you’re accompanied by children. There’s much to see: the basement has interactive toys, the ground floor is soft toys, floor one is all games, two is for pre-schoolers, three is girls’ stuff, four hobbies and five is boys’ toys with a café attached.

Thank you Time Out for a wonderful morning at Hamley's! A great time was had by every member of the family and you even saved money on my Christmas shopping aswell! xx
Great morning ! Staff fantastic Hamleys marvellous and felt like Christmas came early ! Thank you Time Out !!
I attended the Time Out exclusive event and we had a very warm welcome from all the staff which I would find difficult to do early on a Sunday morning. It set the standard for how toy stores should be with demonstrations of their best toys, mini shows and entertainment laid on for the children and a huge range of toys over 7 floors, competitively priced.
I attended the Time Out Card private shopping event on Sunday.
What a treat.
To be in this amazing store with so much time and space to browse and buy.
Christmas is going to be good in our house this year - especially for the kids !
Best attrction for kids in London! They must see it! It is really fantastic. Huge offer of toys and very friendly vendor. There is always something going on! Great animators :)
I've been to Hamleys, I've been to FAO Schwartz........ENGLAND WINS!!! Seriously, Hamleys is so much fun, even if you're not a kid, even if you're not with a kid. My biggest regret in life. Not actually going there when I was a kid!! "Mum?? Dad??.....why did I not?!?!!?"
