My family have been going to this shop for years and years!! The shop supplies everything any hobbiest could want - and if they don't have it in stock they will order it in for you - just ask!
The guy in this shop is always very welcoming (even when busy) and will help you with whatever you need. I went in and asked about magic cards last week and he got everything down for me and let me read every packet so I could choose my favourite pack - no pressure, just left me to it which I thought was awesome. He understood his product and when I asked questions he had the answers I needed.
He also has train sets in stock with everything a hobbiest of this nature would require.
He has a lot of model kits in stock too which are what my family have always been interested in. He can get you whatever you need and can inform you what is coming out soon (which is very handy around Christmas when trying to buy something a fellow geek hasn't already got!)
*** Closed on some weekdays (double check before traveling far)
*** Card machine available in the shop
*** Would be difficult for a wheelchair user... But I'm sure he would accommodate you. :)
I don't know how long this shop has been on the go but I've been going since I was a kid - at least 25 years. This is a family owned business selling everything for model making and trains. From toy soldiers to train sets and everything in between. It has a fantastic range of military models for all periods and associated accessories; paints, glues, scenery, tools etc. They tend to carry something for every pocket from the starter price right through to high end and if they don't have something they can usually order it. In addition they also have a lot of second hand items so it's great for grabbing a bargain every now and then. The staff are hugely knowledgeable and will assist where they can and unlike many places they try to sort out what you want to achieve not what will cost you the most. They want satisfied customers that come back not just a quick buck - hence the reason they have a loyal customer base who come back time and again. Very highly recommended.
