Why Londoners Should Shop at Andertons

There are lots of guitar shops in London, like on the famous Denmark Street. They may be a bit closer if you live closer into the City, but very few shops have boast the customer satisfaction and latest, most impressive range of quality instruments like Andertons. 

We have on-hand friendly experts covering guitars, drums, hi-tech, synths and keyboards to meet all your needs. Other guitar shops leave dusty outdated products on the shelves, but we take pride in keeping our wide array of stock up-to-date and ready to pick up and play. Take them into one of our soundproof rooms for a test drive. We’re more than happy for you to stay all day from 10.00am-6.00pm! 

We’re straightforward to get to from anywhere in London. Refer to our Store Information to check the times for direct trains from Clapham Junction, Waterloo and Wimbledon to Guildford station. There’s also a 1033 space car park only a couple minutes walk away. 

Make a day of your trip to Guildford! Check out the Boileroom venue around the corner from Andertons for regular gigs, experiences and even Andertons-hosted events. Take a five-minute walk into the historic Guildford town, where there are loads of shops, restaurants and hangout spots to explore.
