  • One of the best bookstores in London. A lovely little spot hidden away with a wide range of books. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the store itself has an old library-like feel in its arrangement and quiet atmosphere. However, the books do tend towards the expensive end as expected in London and unfortunately there is no internet connection underground.
  • A great place to find second hand books. This shop has every genre you can think of including sheet music. Books at great prices and very friendly staff who are happy to help. I went looking for a few play scripts and theres a huge selection. Mostly priced around £4
