There's a highly-regarded classical music store near Oxford Circus stop that I'm dying to check out, amongst other things.

Not to practice, goodness no, I'm still very weak at it. Rather, I wanted to snap some photos and possibly find a semi-Russian-themed souvenir for my Russian teacher. For lack of a better example, a neighborhood like the one depicted in "Eastern Promises", where I would see a lot of Cyrillic on the storefronts, and I might find the local Russian-language newspapers.

If all else fails, I can go there. But I don't know if there's a full-on neighborhood of Russian businesses there, or just the one.
