  • Great bookstore with a huge selection of titles over three stories. There are several sections of merchandising products as well, making it a good place to also buy gifts. The service was great as I got directions for a couple of things I couldn't find. Otherwise everything is well labeled and distributed.
  • More than being about books, this bookshop has a breathtakingly gorgeous interior. I could spend hours here. It also has a very calming effect on you. My favorite part of the shop was downstairs, with books about all the countries. I bought so many books and I am not feeling guilty about any of them. So, a worthwhile experience, after all!
  • The interior and ambience here could convince as parody of the comfortably established and reliable 'old world' shopkeeping tradition. All warm wood, parquet floor and studied inscrutability. Astute collation, presenting a fairly representative selection across the genres, mostly the commercially viable, current, obvious and popular. The 'travail' section covers the territory with a noteworthy selection. Staff primed, purposed and engaging. Bargains be thin on the ground here.
  • Huge bookstore with a great selection. Their focus is on travel books so don't go there looking for some obscure work of non-fiction. While they do have sections for non-travel books, it is somewhat limited. Come here with an open mind and find something to inspire the traveller in you.
  • My favourite book shop! Always buy from there when I am in London, and I don't care if the books are more expensive than online. Great staff and lovely natural lit ambience.
