Tottenham Court Road used to be good for that sort of thing. You could try LCE in the Strand. Even if they don't stock a charger they may know who does. You're probably better off with a third party charger as many will work on 12v as well as 230v.

Cameraworld in Wells Street, off Regent Street may help. Else get the train out to SRS Watford.

Watford Junction is 20mins from Euston if that's nearer for you, otherwise it's the Met. and walk through Cassiobury Park to the High Street.

The phone number for Cameraworld (Wells Street, London) is 020 7636505, however I don't see the charger listed on their site.

Luton Cameras are probably the most likely to stock it on the shelf, but it would mean a journey on the train. Tel: 01582 458323

Good luck! :)

Wait, I may have got that wrong about Cameraworld not stocking the charger. Does your camera use BLS5 batteries? If so Cameraworld do list the charger:- http://www.cameraworld.co.uk/ViewProdDetails.asp?prod_code=PON11A000022&Prod_name=Olympus+PS%2DBCS5+Battery+Charger+for+BL S5&CAT_CODE=4&SUBCAT_CODE=210
