London Gaming Market

11:00am – 4:00pm

London Gaming Market is the city’s biggest (and perhaps only) regular market dedicated solely to games and game culture. It’s a regular grab bag of bargains, with everything from retro consoles and accessories to new games and general geek swag. So expect to see your fellow gamers out in droves.

What to expect

The market covers pretty much all aspects of game culture—from video games to board games and tabletop RPGs. Vendors range from seasoned pros to a few private sellers. So it’s not unusual to see imported games and merch you won’t find in your usual stores.
