Why Londoners Should Shop at Andertons
There are lots of guitar shops in London, like on the well-known Denmark Street . They may be a bit closer if you live further into the city. But very few have the prestige, customer satisfaction and newest, huge range of quality instruments like Andertons.
We have friendly on-hand experts covering guitars, drums, hi-tech, synths and keyboards to meet all your needs. Other guitar shops have dusty outdated products left on the shelves, but we take pride in keeping our wide array of stock up-to-date and ready to pick up and play.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 sound-proof rooms for a test drive. We’re more than happy for you to stay all day from 9.30am-6.00pm!
We’re easy to get to from London. Refer to our Store Information to check the times of direct trains from Clapham Junction, Waterloo and Wimbledon to Guildford station. There’s a 1033 space car park only a couple minutes’ walk away.
Make a day of it! Check out the Boileroom venue around the corner 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.
