Local Bookshops


19-21 Tottenham Court Rd, Fitzrovia, London W1T 1BJ, UK – 020 7436 1886

The best bookstore in London in my opinion. Found every book I wanted there even the very very backlist books. Also their stationary section is wonderful and will please every bookworm.

This is very nice bookshop which has bar and coffee shop downstairs. It is very comfy and cosy place where you can just read or study. I like bar downstairs, they are serving coffee and cakes and they do very decent cocktails for reasonable price. Definitely worth a visit!

London Review Bookshop

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

Lovely oasis from surrounding touristy venues. Nourishment for body and soul in small cafe with good range of imaginative vegetarian (?) food at lunch. Tea/coffee and cake also. Lunch dishes mostly £6.50, wonderful value in this area. Friendly service. A great find in a real bookshop.

One of the best bookshops in London. They also have a cafe alongside where today I had one of the top five best lunches I have ever had (gazpacho). The food is as fresh as the book selection.
