Tips

  • The last London remnant of the indie chain who flew too close to the sun. New owners HMV deserve credit for retaining much of the store's soul & bargains aplenty can still be found across its 3 floors
  • Loads of unsold HMV stock found here but Fopp is the solution for all those second time round records, cheap books & DVDs. Music is also categorised better than HMV so get copping those funk reissues!
  • The last remaining great music store - how long will it last?
  • It's always worth popping in here. It's amazing the prices for some of thier deals. Not always brilliant if you're looking for something in particular but if you just want a browse you'll end up leavi
  • If I'm passing Fopp I always call in and usually find a CD or DVD I like. It's trivial, but I like the flat-iron shape of the store... it's a very individual place.
  • Saw Peter hook here enough said !
  • One of the last places in central London that you can browse and buy DVDs and CDs. Scary how quickly things change.
  • I regularly visited the old Fopp Megastore on TCR during the early/mid 2000s, and I'm pleased to see that the brand lives on (thanks to HMV). Always worth a visit for many Music, Film & Book bargains.
  • For more DVDs check downstairs.
  • Fopping around!
  • An outstanding space for a browse. Highly recommended.
  • Wow! It's cheaper than HMV!!
  • Better than HMV (even though it is owned by them). Free regularly instore gigs to keep it interesting.
  • After years of buying movies on Amazon or streaming them, it was really fun to go to Fopp and have my eye caught by so many great and tempting films. Great shop!
  • GO GET MUSIC. Or... GO GET FILMS!
  • Great range of CD and Vinyl at reasonable prices!
  • Still like to visit a record shop? Put this one on your list.
  • Good bargains on CDs and DVDs, focus on the alternative.
  • Good selection, decent promos
  • Great record selection, prices are quite good too.
