Hamleys Toy Store



Hamleys Toy Store

Since 1760, serving kids with toys and a ghost on the staircase

Location: 188 - 196 Regent Street, W1B 5BT

Description: Hamleys is named after William Hamley, who founded a toy shop called Noah's Ark at High Holborn in London in 1760. A branch in Regent Street was opened in 1881, and the Holborn branch was destroyed by fire in 1901.

The business has survived in various forms to the present day, and at one time was the largest toy shop in the world. Hamleys moved to its current Regent Street premises in 1981.

The store is considered one of London's major tourist attractions, and receives about five million visitors a year.

It also claims to have a haunted staircase...so there you go.
