1 Love It

This traditional record shop serves up a range of authentic vintage vinyl, retro tapes, CDs and original memorabilia for music fans to browse through. Priding itself on its non-discriminatory approach, the store's weekly restocks – of over 700 new items – include a wide selection of new and old records, from pop and rock to reggae and dance. It's a wonderful spot for all ages and tastes to shop in, and previous customers include Ray Davies of The Kinks and Jarvis Cocker. Staff are knowledgable, happy to answer questions, and will even serve up tea and coffee if browsing through the vast collection has you plum-tuckered out.

Amazing, constantly changing selection of records. If you've got a music question he'll know the answer!


Alan's Records is a small, little independent record shop that's worth the 10 minute walk from East Finchley station. It's absolutely overrun with thousands of secondhand records in a small space. It's definitely worth taking the time to rummage around the store to find some hidden treasures!

The guy goes back on deals that he makes with you...avoid and go to someone who when they shake hands on a deal, do what they say

Alan's Records is worth the slog up the street from the tube station. Check the opening days and times, though. I always come away with some good varied stuff and it's a friendly place, too.
