BEST INDEPENDENT LONDON BOOKSHOPS

A few of my favourite shops from a failed bookshop owner and forever bookshop lover.
  1. John Sandoe
    Just off Sloane Square and recently expanded. The most well-read staff in the city.
  2. London Review Bookshop
    Great selection and excellent cafe
  3. Daunt Books
    Classic bookshop with a few locations around London. Also regular schedule of author events. The Marylebone shop is perfect for extended browsing.
  4. Hatchards
    A London institution since 1797. Two locations. Immense history sections.
  5. Foyles
    Family owned since 1903 and recently moved and renovated, you can find little bit of everything. Great baked goods in the cafe too.
