Join me on the London Bookshop Tour

London is full of many great things, one of which is bookshops. There are the iconic bookstores like Foyles in Charing Cross and Waterstones’s flagship store in Piccadilly and then there’s the army of indies that are peppered around the city:

More or less every weekend that I’ve been in London, I’ve unintentionally found myself in another new bookshop. Yet the list of stores I haven’t visited is still huge. So I’ve decided to visit a new bookshop every weekend that I can. All I need is a free morning or afternoon to jump on the tube and sail towards exciting unexplored book territory. It’s also a nice way to see parts of the city I don’t know yet. So I am beginning my own unofficial bookshop tour of London. Next stop, The Folio Society in Holborn.

Do you know any great bookshops in London you think I should visit?

  1. While you are in the Charing X Road take time to visit “Any Amount of Books” (and their fascinating website http://www.bookride.com) as well as Henry Pordes (almost next door). Two great second-hand bookshops with decades of history behind them.

  2. Wonderful suggestions, thank you!
    I will add them to my list (which I am sure will keep getting larger rather than smaller)
