I have a day off tomorrow for Christmas shopping, so thought I'd multi task and visit some camera stores, so does anyone have any recommendations? There are none near me so I've never even picked up a k3 before

Check the LCE and Camera World websites - possibly also Jessops?
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

Park Cameras have recently opened a new store in Rathbone Place (just off Oxford Street at the Tottenham Court Rd end). They carry a decent range of Pentax gear. Other than that London camera Exchange have a shop in the Strand near the entrance to the Savoy hotel and Microglobe are near the British Museum. I think Park Cameras are your best option though.

Just stay away from Spectrum in Tottenham Court Road, unless you like high pressure sales of products with no prices, and rude rebuttal of any opinions you have!

Park have a reasonable Pentax selection, and always seem willing to let you try out lenses.

I think last time I was in couple of weeks ago they had in k3, k5 mkiis, the ks1 and 645d, and decent set of da and limited lens.

Though if you want more choice its probably the train up to Watford to SRS.
