Default Where can I bought some Tubes in England?

Hello All,
I am now planning to have a trip to England.
As I am tube DIYer, I want to find some Mullard , Brimar etc. tubes.
SO, Can anyone know where still has tube sale? (better in London)?
Thx!

Nothing in London really , just Langrex in Croydon , south London (it's a bit of a trek) and just north of London (25 miles from the city centre) , Watford Valves in Garston . I doubt there are any shops with valves on display , most dealers are based from warehouses and usually operate mail order . The only shop was Colomor who used to have a shop on the Goldhawk Road but even they have moved to Billingshurst , Kent , again to a warehouse !

Default Order before you get there.

You can also get them at CVC (Chelmer Valve Company ) and Wilmslow Audio. They have web sites though I don't have the URL. My pal ordered them as soon as he got there and had it delivered to his hotel.
Cheers.

Wilmslow aren't really a valve supplier (speakers) and they're up t'north in Leicester and only have a limited range . Watch out with CVC ! Ask what manufacturer the tubes are made by if using their 'CVC Premium' brand . They are a rebrander , you could get Mullard , Ei anything

Only a Londoner could consider Leicester as being up north.
There is also PM Components in Chatham.
