Why locals recommend it
South London’s unsung secondhand vinyl mecca, Rat Records is a big hit with locals but very much under the radar for those north of the river. It’s all pre-loved vinyl here, with a selection that changes every week, so you’ll never see the same thing twice. To get the best selection, you have to be there when they do the stock switch. This happens on Saturday mornings, and there’s usually a queue to accompany this renewal. If you can wake up early enough on Saturday, head here for opening time at 10:30 am.
