Located in the heart of Bloomsbury, just a Rosetta Stone’s throw from the British Museum, the London Review Bookshop has established itself as an essential part of the capital’s cultural life.
Opened in 2003 by the London Review of Books, it’s a place for people who love books to meet, talk, drink excellent tea and coffee, consume delicious cake, and of course, browse.
Their selection of more than 20,000 titles ranges from the classics of world literature to the cutting edge of contemporary fiction and poetry, not forgetting a copious display of history, politics, philosophy, cookery, essays and children’s books. And their lovely shop, designed by Amanda Culpin of utility, provides the perfect setting in which to explore them all.
Their aim has always been to represent on their shelves the distinctive ethos of the Review – intelligent without being pompous; engaged without being partisan. If you aren’t able to visit them in person, their website will give you a flavour of what makes the shop unique.
Join them in Bury Place, and look forward to finding all the books you know you need, and more importantly, the ones you didn’t know you needed.
