  • Browse the books and then have a tea or coffee plus a range of cakes and snacks. Good quality and service plus wifi. But London prices!! We enjoyed it 
  • Stanfords is like a heaven for me - I really love it. Travel items, maps, gifts, all under one roof. What more could you ask for? You totally deserve this one. 5 out of 5
  • Amazing selection of maps and books for the traveler. I particularly liked the travel novels of unique places around the globe.
  • Don't miss the marine section downstairs or browse through the beautiful maps hanging on the first floor. The shop keepers seem resigned to their new place in this digital first world but still show their appreciation if you exhibit a bit of enthusiasm for the more esoteric maps they produce.
  • This is the place to get your topographical needs! Maps are everywhere! The helpful staff winder about so if you need something in particular they'll be there to assist you.
  • Very good for all kind of travel relates books, also have all kinds of maps. Have a small cosy cafe as well.
