Local Bookshops


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

One of my favourite spots in London. An enormous bookshop with excellent choice, everything is laid out logically and there are always interesting titles dotted around the shop on displays, recently they had a collection of books by authors included in Trump's "Muslim ban", which I thought was a great idea. The cafe on the top floor is also good, a bit pricey but very nice vibes with lots of people working away, friends meeting and book club meetings and the like! A great place for a bookshop lover to spend an hour or two.

I love this book store. It has not just your traditional books of various genres but also whole sections for study books and music. The help desk was also super lovely when I was looking for as specific item that ended up being in their basement! Their stationery section isn't very large but it has good quality products.

Blackwell's Bookshop

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

Very small bookshop. Never answer their phone so you can check stock before you make an unnecessary journey. Very limited stock and has no association with the publishing company of the same name. Go to Foyles instead.

Plenty of selection but the staff are not as attentive as they used to be. If you need legal literature, you're probably better off going to wildeys down the road from this place. Nonetheless I cannot give them any negative comments.
