    Foyles Bookstore

    7 reviews

    An absolutely unparalleled selection of books, and the Foyles editions themselves are particularly beautiful. Great for non-fiction requirements as well, such as foreign language grammar books.

    National Theatre

    5 reviews

    Despite the criticisms of this place as soulless, I think it's a very convenient venue. Enjoyed seeing Edward II there. It's not the Old Vic, but it's great all the same.

    Waterstones - Piccadilly

    3 reviews

    Nice for a good wander. But I much prefer buying any reading material from the plethora of used bookstores. The best thing about this Waterstones, is the view from the 5th Floor. Stop in for an over priced tea if you fancy. But, not really worth it.

    My favorite place in London. It's speciality in maps and traveling books/guides. Everything that you need to organize a trip you can find there, also it's nice just to go there to dream about the next trips. hehehehe Just by Coven Garden. Was the cheaper place in London I found the big world (the national Geopraphic one).

    Commonly described as "cheap and cheerful" this bookshop sells new books at incredibly low prices. Be prepared to carry your own weight in books when you leave. Good for crafts and interior design books.

    Cecil Court

    1 review

    Should be renamed Book Lover's Paradise Court, IMHO. An highly atmospheric victorian pedestrian street off Sharing Cross, with nearly twenty antiquarian and second-hand independent bookshops specializing on anything you can imagine.

    A lovely store with an eclectic selection of books. Very good for plays and theatre related books. The cosy corner where you can sit and read to children makes it even more special.

    Fosters' Bookshop

    Based in a Georgian house, this bookshop is everything a second hand bookshop should be. I even love the smell of it. Specialises in antiquarian books, fine bindings, children's illustrated and first editions.

    Halcyon Books

    1 review

    Much bigger than it looks from the outside, it's a true Ali Baba's cave with piles of books from floor to ceiling. Very good for military books and classics.
