Hank's Guitar Shop
Quite a few of the best guitar shops in London are located on the legendary Denmark Street, Hank's Guitar Shop being no exception. The store opened back in 1985, and you will be sure to receive expert guidance if you choose to shop for an instrument here.
Apart from having a mesmerizing selection of guitars and basses, they are also known for their expertise when it comes to vintage guitars. Countless professional musicians frequent Hank's Guitar Shop, including The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, Oasis and U2.

If you're looking to invest in either a Fender or a Gretsch, then you absolutely need to stop by Regent Sounds, which is also located on Denmark Street. This shop specialises in guitars and amps made by Fender and Gretsch, and you'd be hard pressed to find their expertise matched anywhere.
In addition to their impressive stock of Fender and Gretsch guitars and amps, the store also carries a number of boutique guitar pedals and accesories, and they have a renowned in-house repair service. They also boast excellent customer service, as every guitar they sell comes with two years of free servicing.

Wunjo opened in 2001, and wasn't originally located on Denmark Street, but they grew quickly, and today they have two locations: Denmark Street, which is where you will find everything related to electric guitars and basses, as well as their workshop, and Charring Cross Road, which is where you will find acoustic guitars and keyboards and synths.
Much like both Hank's and Regent Sounds, Wunjo has an excellent selection of not only instruments, but also amps and pedals, and they are known for their excellent customer service, which has earned them the reputation as "The Friendliest Guitar Shop in Denmark Street, If Not London.... If Not The World!"
Regent Sounds is located at 5 Denmark St, but even if you aren't going to London anytime soon you should check out their website as they ship globally.
