The staff is extremely rude. I was rudely told "there is a 10£ charge to look around the shop" by the attendant next to the hats. Will suggest anyone who visits do not go to this shop.

The idea of the Trocadero is to collect both shops, entertainment (gaming halls with arcade machines) and some eateries - the focus has always been on teenagers and when the place has felt like most ok, it has been likened to a large 'bubble gum'!...More

A very disappointing place. It seems to be aimed mainly at the tourist trade, with little to offer in the way of something worth seeing. It is not worth the time going. Surely something better could be done with this site.

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
