Tool Shop

97 Lower Marsh, Waterloo, London SE1 7AB, UK – 020 7207 2077

You have the best staff, hands down. How they keep their whole team that customer focused is a mystery. They are knowledgeable, attentive and helpful without being overbearing. Their selection is limited when compared to the big box stores, as you might imagine, but they have a good selection of high end accessories and low end necessities that perfect for an upscale neighborhood hardware store. As a part of the Ace Hardware network, they can also order just about anything you want if you have a little time.

For somewhere right in the middle of London the choice here is amazing. Little you can't find if you need it.
