The Beatles Store has not too much stuff, but they certainly have a lot. Tons of t-shirts, John Lennon's glasses and the Beatles' autographs (£5,800...)
With other words, this is the store for the ultimate Beatles fan. I like that they seem to change the front side of the shop often, to match the different Beatles albums. The staff is also very helpful and friendly.
Wandered in here 5 minutes til closing, in somewhat of a fog after a moving experience at Abbey Road.
Situated just outside the St John's Wood Underground station, this teeny, closet of a shop is packet to the brim with Beatlemania gear. I grabbed an Andy Worhol Beatles tote for my sister Victoria D, although it didn't make up for the fact that she, one of the biggest Beatles fans I know, wasn't there with me :-( I did the only thing I could, bought her a ton of Beatles stuff to compensate for my guilt.
They also carry bookmarks, albums, t-shirts, mugs...perhaps some might be horrified at the idea of The Beatles being cheesified into merchandise, but it meant more to me that I bought it there, just steps away from THE Abbey Road.
The girl at the counter was patient with me and didn't seem too annoyed that I was holding up closing time. You Brits are so polite :)
I'm sure I've heard of these Beatles gentlemen. Musicians, right? They used to make records, if memory serves. You kids these days with your new-fangled rock and roll. What are we to do with you?
For those who know who the Walrus is, this is for you. The greatest collection of Beatles memorabilia that's all for sale. Whether it's a t-shirt or a poster of the famous Abbey Road cover or even the music, it's all for sale here at extremely high prices. Seriously, shop around first. If you still can't find what you want at any of the dozens of souvenir shops within the near two blocks, then yes, buy it here.
£12 for a fridge magnet. £10 for a lapel pin. £20+ for t-shirts. And much more. But shopping and browsing the store is completely free! Shopgirls are conveniently placed through the shop to help you avoid dropping stuff into your bag. By accident, of course.
I wouldn't recommend walking here from St. John's Wood station - it's barely 200 yards and across the street from Baker Street station. (Yes, it's THAT Baker Street.)
Whether you're simply a mild fan or a total Beatles fanatic, there's the London Beatles Store. The store is quite small but is packed with enough Beatles paraphernalia to go from here to Abbey Road. The shop owner is kind and dresses the part.
I love their selection of vintage posters which sell from an upwards of £20. If you're a big spender, you can find original memorabilia such as autographs lunchboxes, cuff links, posters, etc that range into the thousands! This is a great place for tourists and locals alike to get a sense of what the Beatles era was all about.
It's alright, I could probably find these items online for the same price I think. But worth a stop by when in the neighborhood.
No VAT under £30.
Obviously for Beatles fans. Lots of cool Beatles memorabilia that I've either only seen there or is difficult to find. Fun to walk around in there. Nice that it's not too far walk from the center of London. Nice staff, but a lot of stuff was kind of expensive, exchange rate or not.
I stumbled upon this store on my way to the Sherlock Holmes Museum (THE famous baker street, hellooo) and it was a pretty neat little shop. They have anything you could ever want related to the Beatles...mugs, shirts, magnets, clothing patches, postcards, mouse pads, etc. And of course they were playing Beatles music in the background! If you're a Beatles fan, this is a pretty cool place to stop in. Personally I just bought a postcard because everything in London is so freakin expensive; but it is a pretty sick postcard...
5 stars only because I've been a Beatles fan ever since I was 3 years old and they still are and will always be one of my absolute favorite bands. There's so much great merchandise here and some of it you can't find anywhere else so I would recommend if there's a piece of Beatles paraphernalia you absolutely must have or would want to get for a friend or loved one, get it here. The thing is, though, I was in London at a time when the dollar was still very weak against the pound and I had to be super careful about my spending, so I didn't buy anything, but the good news is that their website gives you a good idea of what they carry.
Situated ideally opposite the Baker Street station, The Beatles store is impossible to miss. Its tempting look and music heard from the outside spread the atmosphere of the '60s and present the Beatles from the greatest side. The shop has everything.
The amount of accesorises, bags, hats, scarfs, CDs, books and ashtrays is stunning. You can get everything, although the shop itself looks seemingly small inside. Also, there are flyers that can tell you where you can find other shops selling things connected with the band. Madness!
Surprisingly, the staff knows absolutely everything about the Beatles. Spending whole days listening to their music or checking the prices of the selected products, they have learnt absolutely everything and they are happy to share their knowledge with you. They give you presents (obviously The Beatles presents) when spending fifty pounds or more (which, believe me, is not hard at all).
The world seems so grey when you're leaving the shop, though
