Your first port of call should be Denmark Street, off Charing Cross
Road in the West End. Take the tube to Leicester Square or Tottenham
Court Road. The street used to be known as Tin Pan Alley because of
the number of shops selling music and musical instruments - there are
still a few left!

Helter Skelter is a rock/pop bookshop which has a reasonably large
sheet music section. They are at

4 Denmark Street, 
London WC2H 8LL
020 - 7836 1151

Argents Music sell mainly classical sheet music, but they also have a
section for Rock and Jazz sheet music.

Argents Printed Music
20 Denmark Street
London WC2H 8NA 
020 7379 3384 

The third place to try, opposite Denmark Street on Charing Cross Road,
is the infamous and huge Foyles Bookshop. They sell sheet music on the
third floor.

W & G Foyle Ltd
113-119 Charing Cross Road
London WC2H 0EB
Fax: 020 7434 1580

A short stroll or bus ride along Oxford Street or a trip on the
Central Line from Tottenham Court Rd to Bond Street will take you to
Chappell's, a famous and very extensive musical instrument and sheet
music shop. Well worth a visit!

Chappell of Bond Street
50 New Bond Street
London W1S 1RD
020 7491 2777


Outside the West End, there are a handful of other places to try:

Kensington Chimes Music
9 Harrington Road
South Kensington
Tel: 020 7589 9054
(South Kensington tube)

Archive Bookstore
83 Bell Street
London NW1 6TB
tel: 0207 402 8212
(Marylebone Tube - this is a second hand shop so may not have newer
music, but has a very extensive and reasonably priced stock)

Hope you find what you're looking for,


Search strategy: London + "sheet music"; however, most of this comes
from many years' experience of working in London bookshops.
