HMV Megastore

Shopping, Music and entertainment Oxford Street
1 Love It
Save it

Oxford Street’s only remaining megastore – now that Virgin/Zavvi and Borders have bitten the dust – the HMV flagship is a first and last stop for CDs, records and DVDs covering all genres.

The sensory overload may be too much for those who prefer the more relaxing and personalised atmosphere of some of the small independents, but there’s no denying the width and breadth of the stock available here. And with competitive seasonal sales, cut-price box sets and hundreds of rarities and imports, there’s little chance you’ll leave this world-beating behemoth of a store empty-handed.

The vast basement houses broad classical, world music and jazz sections, and staff are always on hand to locate discs for you.

If you like your vinyls then this is the place to go! It has such a huge selection with all the latest releases as well as the old classics! The staff are friendly and happy to help. The venue also hosts many album signings throughout the year. I was fortunate enough to meet Craig David here, the signing was on the upper level in a private room, therefore not distracting other shoppers. Great place with lots of space and musical selection!


HMV has always been my favorite store for both records, DVDs and TV Series Boxsets. Their prices are competitive and they often offer great deals like "2 DVDs for £10, 5 for £20" or "2 CDs for £10" and generally the prices of products not on offer are still very much affordable compared to other record chain stores or online outlets. The staff is extremely friendly and always available for help out should you need to find something in particular, or you simply need help with a gift. Don't miss the "wonderland" of records and DVDs, you'll rarely leave empty-handed! 


I could spend hours and hours here browsing everything on offer... but these days my eyes are only on the records upstairs. The North American HMV stores are closing down now, which makes me sad, but this place puts it all to rights. From the sign out front with the dog and the phonograph, to the selection of vinyl (new and classic releases), I feel at home here. The staff are more attentive than any I knew from the stores of my youth in Canada, and aren't uppity in a way a lot of record store staff can be. Definitely worth checking out.
