Spread across four rooms The Uptown Vinyl Records shop offers a huge range of stock, we have around 200,000+ vinyl records available, along with 25,000+ CDs. We believe we're the largest independent vinyl record shop in the UK, if you know anywhere bigger please let us know!

We're also unusual in that 99.9% of our stock is genuine vintage - we have only a small amount of new sealed modern vinyl pressings. We also have collections of other formats such as cassette and 8-track, music memorabilia, books and more.

The advantage of having such a large space is that we can devote more space to genres that others shops can't afford to give room to such as Country and Classical.

Celebrating 60 Years of Please Please Me

Shop owner Alan Barnsdale celebrates the 60th anniversary of the release of The Beatles first studio album Please Please Me with a wall display of more than sixty copies!

Alan's been an avid collector of all things Beatles since the sixties so we have a substantial collection of Beatles vinyl, including many rarities.
