Any good hobby electronics shops and places in London? Answered

My father sort of works in London and I am going there for my school autumn holidays. Does anyone know any good and interesting electronics shops, except for  obvious ones like Maplin, maybe some small and strange ones... I don't have much money, and I am going to be in Battersea, but the shops can be anywhere, if it is a reasonable, not walk-bus-train-bus-walk distance away.


Alas, Tottenham Court Road used to be THE place for electronics stuff in London when I was a kid (30 years ago)

Now I can only suggest Display Electronics, who ARE not that far from  Battersea.
