It’s retained its old name, but in 2006 Chappell moved from Bond Street (its home for nearly 200 years) to this amazing three-storey temple (four, if you include the Lost Loft and its guitar fashion range of pick pockets, straps and tees) in Soho. The shop is the leading Yamaha stockist in the UK, with a great range of digital, acoustic and hybrid pianos, electric and acoustic guitars, brass, woodwind and electronic equipment.
Prices start at around £20 for a recorder and head into the stratosphere (around £19,000) for a double bass. The basement houses the store’s collection of sheet music is reputedly the largest in Europe, and the shop also supplies music books and backing tracks.
