Things that are actually cheaper in the UK (than the USA)?

I see there are a bunch of questions about things which are cheaper in the US. I'm turning that tried-and-true question on its head!
There are a couple of things I really like that are cheaper to buy in the UK than the US (Mason Pearson hairbrushes; La Roche Posay sunblock - normal old sold-at-the-chemist sunblock in the UK, expensive-as-hell-through-ebay sunblock in the US).
I'm heading to the UK for a brief work-related trip and I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions of other nice things to add to my list for the brief time I'll devote to shopping.
Qualifications are: 1) Must be cheaper in the UK than the US; 2) Is worth the money no matter what.
I'm considering adding Wolford tights to this list, since everybody on Mefi who wears them seems to love them, and it figures that they'd be cheaper in London than here. Any other suggestions?
