Rough Trade

130 Talbot Road Notting Hill London W11 1JA

Step back into a world where music came in analogue form, on plastic disks bigger than your head, and wonder at all the music geeks still quietly enjoying their hobby. If you are seriously into music, or just interested in the history of this shop, which is connected to acts like The Smiths to The Libertines via Rough Trade Records, you have to drop by even if you don't own a record player. The shop still has posters artwork and sleeves from way-back-when on the wall, so if you're a music buff, head along just to soak up the atmosphere and reminisce about times past or pick up some of the punk and alternative music they carry – the choice of music is experimental and eclectic.
