Interesting synth-related places in London?

Hi all,

I'll be in England (and Ireland) for a couple of weeks, mostly in London.

Any interesting places worth visiting? Could be shops, museums or whatever.

Thanks,

D.

Shame, the credits say that the Oramics to Electronica was only running to Dec '12.

Schneiders Bureau have a small modular synth showroom in Rough Trade East (which is also a great record store).

Also going to Ireland and London, at the end of the month. I may have to keep an eye out for some shops while in London.

A very nice demo booth is being built for London Modular which'll take a couple of weeks to finish up. It's inside vinyl pimp record store in hackney wick. The website is running as usual - www.londonmodular.co.uk
