Local Bookshops

London Review Bookshop

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

Nice place, very small though and waited to be surrounded by books (which not). The same with the size of lunch food portions...too small for the price. The best: the cakes. Different types, vegan options.

I adore this shop. They have the best selection of Academic and provoking books I think I have ever seen. Most impressively, they do not show a bias to the right or the left, only a bias toward good writing. With knowledgeable (and good looking) staff and a lovely coffee shop attached, this is a place I spend over and hour every time I can when I pass through London. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

The Russian Bookshop : Waterstones Piccadilly

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

Just love Waterstones, and the Russian language on the 4th floor is great; wish I could make progress with learning Russian, though! Staff are friendly and helpful, and will tell you when a native speaker member of staff is in on the day..as I tend to ask for the Russian speaking staff member to help me with something in a text book that I don't quite understand!

Still at the early stages in my course but there is so much of material here to browse.

RIBA Bookshops

66 Portland Pl, Marylebone, London W1B 1AD, UK – 020 7307 3753

Good bookshop. I find it quite hot in the winter if you come from outside all wrapped up make sure you take your coat off first.

Good resource but prices need to be varied for professionals and students
