Hi
Depends what you want.
Maplin and RS have trade counters. Rapid and Farnell by post.
There are the 'DIY' places which will have something that gets hotter at one end than the other, depends what you want to pay.

Maplins throughout Central London:

London - Maplin Electronics

You can check stock levels online too (if you're willing to believe them...).

K.

PS. I'd guess the Tottenham Court Road branch is the most central.
