I'm traveling from the US to London next week and I'm wondering if there are any dealers in London that have great Festool inventories on hand?  I wouldn't be looking for any power tools, but just for accessories (drill bits, router bits, etc.) which can be hard to find here in the US.

Any suggestions?

I visited Axminster in Southampton. Lots of great gear and I bought 2 super long dogs and the track keeper clips. Lots of Festool gear for sure. They sell UJK brands that are top quality. Peter the "parf system man" recommended Axminster. There are many locations in the UK. Screwfix is like a warehouse that you walk into and look at a catalog then ask a counter person to see if it is in stock - not a browsing experience.

D & M Tools in Twickenham would be a great shop to visit, plenty of tools and a full range of Festool stuff, it is just a short train ride from the centre of London, also well worth a visit is Hampton Court Palace once the home of Henry VIII which is not far away.

Toucan Tools in East London have a good display of tools and accessories probably best to email them before a visit if you want to see something in particular.  Probably applies to any shop you intend to visit to purchase  accessories they aren't always carried in stock as they can be shipped in a day or two.  We're much smaller than the states so quicker to ship.

Axminster have a number of stores, but none in Southampton.  D&M Tools would be my recommendation.

Thanks to all for the responses.  I'm not really sure my schedule will permit me to sneak off to do any shopping, but good to know in case I have the chance!  Cheers.  (see what I did there??)

Actually, I stayed in Southampton and visited the Axminster location in Basingstoke (as Andrew noted there is no Southampton store). Here is a link I am sure will help you with options. Hope that helps Andrew as well:
