British Comic Shops and other comic locations

Comic Shops in the UK and Ireland

Very much a work in progress, here's a map of British and Irish comic shops and venues that often have comics exhibitions or comics events. It's generated using Google Maps; if I've missed a shop, please let me know and I'll add it as soon as possible. I hope it's useful.

Please note, despite the ever-improving accuracy of search engines, it's worth checking a shop is still open, or its opening times, before you make a trip.

It's also worth checking the web sites of your local comic shops - or indeed the web sites of any of the comic shops mapped above, as most also provide mail order services.
