Was killing time whilst daughter was at a concert so I thought I'd buy the cd for who she was seeing. Nice store, friendly staff. Lots of choice.

Yes, I remember when CD and DVD stores were bigger and better. But those stores are gone and most cities near me are left with a fairly small and unimaginative section in Best Buy or Target, and not much else. I spent a couple of hours at this HMV and got back some of those memories of times when I'd... More

Second time I have been for a gig and I must say I'm very impressed with the store and the layout of the live venue and I look forward to going back there again soon.

I was heartbroken when the mega-store sized HMV store opposite Poland Street was closed as the flagship and operations transferred to this much smaller store near Bond Street tube. It has a good selection of DVDs and some CDs, but it is too small, especially for a flagship store. Also certain DVDs are never in stock despite only being recent... More

This is a big record shop but lacking in that personal touch you would get if it was independently run. They do have a huge selection of records, all in alpha order and by genre. Very few bargains and a strange pricing policy which has some records by an artist varying in price from £5 -£13. It seems odd that... More

Having lived with the demise of Tower Records and the Virgin MegaStore chain, it is a joy to know that HMV, a full-fledged "record" store, still exists. For me, there is a great joy seeing and handling CD's etc. before deciding to buy them. And there is always the chance of discovering an old gem or brand new artist. This... More

Was happy and surprised to see the legendary store standing still on Oxford street. It was like Disneyland for me. Deals and choices are excellent. Go in, you wont regret.

Each time I visit London I try and stop here. They have a huge selection of cd's and dvd's with more vinyl available upon every visit (along with a ton of other products). The staff is knowledgeable; they even know what an older person such as myself is talking about! Even with the exchange rate, there are bargains to be... More
