(Regent Street, London, UK)

One of the largest toy shops in the world, and certainly one of the most famous, Hamleys, in London's Regent Street extends to six floors and stocks a vast range of games, toys and models including model railways and toy trains.

Hamleys was originally known as Noah's Ark, and began life in 1760, at Ludgate Hill, Holborn, to the east of the current West End position. The shop moved to Regent Street in 1881.
