Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Self-confessed geeks (and otherwise) get together at London’s mega-store for sci-fi, fantasy and comic-related books and memorabilia. Forbidden Planet stocks thousands of books – covering science fiction, animation, graphic arts, computer games, film, horror, sport, superheroes, and more – as well as a huge range of graphic novels, from classic Marvel comics, to obscure small publishers from around the world, to Viz manuals. The store also stocks a good number of signed books, as well as a huge range of DVDs, action figures, posters, clothing, games, and other genre-related merchandise. What’s more, author events take place here regularly. A first port-of-call for Star Wars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Doctor Who obsessives.
