  Let me take you to my favourite bookshops in London! Bookshops mentioned: Waterstones (Gower Street) Foyles (Tottenham Court Road) Gosh Comics Hatchards Thanks to my boyfriend for helping me film. The Musgrave Centre shop is a popular general book destination, the West Street shop sells general, nursing and academic books and the Adams & Griggs branch is a school book and academic shop carrying by far the largest stock of educational books in KZN.

Cecil Court Bookshops. The Tourist England Team: There’s a tiny street in London, a few minutes walk from Trafalgar Square called Cecil Court. This is a paradise for second-hand book lovers, with around eleven (!!) bookstores on both sides of the street. A treasure trove from a bygone era, this should be the first stop on any serious book. 10 of the best London second hand bookshops We all know the pleasures of a good bookshop. But even the delights of whiling away hours in Foyles or your local independent can't compare to stumbling upon improbably tiny shops, where every surface is groaning under the weight of ancient leather-bound tomes and dog-eared out of print : Alice Ahearn.

  So, when I arrived in London, I was determined to set one day aside to visit as many antiquarian bookshops within walking distance that I could muster. I am an amateur book collector, specializing in William Morris, 17thth century medievalism, and some children’s literature (often folklore).   T hese favorite bookshops are just the tip of the iceberg, as many of London’s museums have great bookshops and the area around the British Museum has a number of secondhand and rare book stores. Also, the Royal National Theatre on the South Bank has a particularly good shop with a large theater collection on its ground : Jennifer Dorn.
