North along the Tottenham Court Road from Centre Point to Goodge Street


The Tottenham Court Road is of interest to CyberPunk tourists for the selection of electronic gadgets , mobile phones,computers, music players, spy equipment, GPS navigation equipment etc. on sale

There are various national retail chain stores and more specialised, often exiled Iranian owned, electronics shops, who tend to compete ruthlessly on the price and availability of the latest "hot" gadgets.

On the British Museum, eastern side of the Tottenham Court Road are a couple of shops selling cheap electronic bugging devices and hidden surveillance cameras, as well as GPS equipment and civilian grade night vision goggles (which are enough to get you arrested as a terrorist if you try to export them to say, Pakistan).

On the western side of the Tottenham Court Road, between Hanway Street and Stephen Street at 9-16 Tottenham Court Road,
is the familiar orange and white branded Easy Internet Café with about 470 internet PCs.

They are open very late and have a prepaid voucher machine system to buy internet connection time. You are less likely to have your email or blog publishing or internet banking authentication credentials snarfed by password sniffers etc. from viruses or spyware, as each machine has its software rebuilt from central server images after each customer's session.


Next door, is another useful Sainsbury's supermarket for the purchase of food and drink (including alcohol at farless than the pub and bar prices)

N.B. it is illegal to openly drink alcohol in the street in this central area of London, either in the City of Westminster or the Borough of Camden - you can have your drinks confiscated by the Police or the Police Community Support Officers (who go around in pairs) and face a fine etc.
