  • Excellent shop, with really nice staff and a good selection. It's not a super large place, but they have so many great things available, and a curated selection of books you actually want to read. Beautifully presented, classic, good selection of Daunt-published books, and good prices.
  • One of the best travel bookshop, I've ever been too. There are so many books about each country in the world.The library covers all continents. As well as , there some travel vintage books which are very hard to find elsewhere. I truly recommend anyone who is planning to travel or into travel books or looking for books about specific country ( photography, poetry, history, etc) to visit
  • Very Beautiful bookshop and extensive collections. Extremely attentive staff. Ps. They also offer a nice tote bag when you purchase books here.
  • Huge bookshop, you can find everything you want. It has a very nice old-fashioned area with books classified by country.
  • Absolutely awesome bookshop you can spend many hours in! I love the atmosphere here.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
