Local Bookshops


Royal Festival Hall., Southbank Centre, Belvedere Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 8XX, UK – 020 7440 3212

Fairly representative and current stock across the genre spectrum with few surprises or divergences. Full Publishers' recommended prices the norm here though bargains be thin on the ground. You would need to wait now for the winter of their discountent. A contemporary, bright and spacious interior with eager and mindful staff flittering about.

Fantastic for books. Not so good for pizza


107 Charing Cross Rd, Soho, London WC2H 0DT, UK – 020 7437 5660

Biggest and best chain style bookshop in town. Staff are helpful and kind and each section is massive so the choice is endless. Multi story so make sure that you check the signs for which floors you need. The lifts are the best easy to go between floors as it is such a big store. Always found what I'm looking for here and generally leave with more books than I had intended on purchasing when I went in!

A fantastic multi-level bookstore with every genre from kids to fantasy to military strategy. On the top floor they also have a great cafe with a wide selection of snacks, drinks, and meals available. The cafe seems to be a popular place for students and employees to come to work in as it has a great relaxed environment
