Try http://www.reelsonwheels.co.uk. They have a limited selection but do deliver
to a good section of the Central London area. Delivery is free of charge and
includes pickup for returns. Physically, they are located next to Parsons Green
tube. I believe they now take orders via their website and also offer snacks.
