London Review Bookshop

14-16 Bury Pl, Bloomsbury, London WC1A 2JL, UK – 020 7269 9030

Always a good choice for a quick lunch in a quirky location. The food is good and never boring. As well as sitting inside the bookshop, which sometimes gets quite crowded, there's the possibility to sit outside which I would highly recommend on a sunny day. The books available are not bad either :)

Brilliant bookshop, happened upon it by accident, and very glad I did. I asked about a book I was looking for and the staff were able to tell me that it is currently out of print in the UK, and tell me which of the author's books are still available. Very impressed. Reminded me of the Shop around the Corner from You've Got Mail.

The Russian Bookshop : Waterstones Piccadilly

203-, 206 Piccadilly, St. James's, London W1V 9LW, UK – 020 7851 2400

Great book selection, especially if you're looking for bed time story books for your kids.

Nice an cool on a hot day in the city

Blackwell's Bookshop

50-51 High Holborn, London WC1V 6EP, UK – 020 7292 5100

Really lovely shop to just browse in ( before you then have to stop yourself buying more books than you can carry 🤣). Particularly liked the big selection of employee recommendations. This is a great way to read something I may not have chosen before.

The bookstore didn't have either of two books that I wanted. However, the coffee shop made a very nice dry cappuccino. And the carrot cake was "okay".
