Can I buy the 3(three) micro sim card at Tesco?

Next month, I'll take a trip to london for 8 nights.

My hotel is near the gloucester road tube station and I heard that the tesco south kensington express is just in front of the tube station.

My flight will arrive night at heathrow, so I want to buy the sim card at tesco(which opening 24 hrs).

Can I buy the 3(three) micro sim card with unlimited data for 1 month at tesco south kensington express??

I know Tesco do have some SIM cards in stock in their stores so you may be in luck. If not, There is a carphone warehouse near Earls Court on the tube, so head there..

I checked at my local Tesco store this morning and didn't see any 3 SIM cards at the till but they have a phone shop in store where they display the 3 logo, so you may not find what you want at an express shop.

You are more likely to find them at a superstore. Nearest one is

West Cromwell Road

Kensington

W14 8PB

Which is also 24 hour opening.

That Tesco in south ken does not sell them, neither does the large one in Cromwell road - you are better to go to the three shop which is right by high st kensington tube station just a couple of tube stops away or a 10 to 15 minute walk from Gloucester road

also the Tesco in Cromwell road is no longer a superstore (ie Tesco Extra facilities) - it's been refitted to include new bakery, cafe, still has big food hall but does not have the in store phone shops that exist elsewhere, and has also cut back sharply on phones, electricals etc.

3 Mobile has cut back on who now sells their SIM's. They can no longer be bought at Carphone Warerhouse.

I believe they can only be purchased at their own stores now.

Are you staying near Gatwick or travelling into London from Gatwick Airport? This could determine where is the best place for you to get a SIM card from.

3 mainly sell sim card via their own stores or by request to be posted to you. There's a 3 store in most high street area's within each london area.
