Daunt Books

100% love it
One of London's best-loved bookshops
Visually pleasing Edwardian bookshop specializing [though not exclusively] in travel literature, with not only guides but also fiction and maps pertaining to each destination. Consistently tops bookshop polls thanks to selection of books, excellent staff, decor and overall atmosphere. A proper bookshop for sure. Other branches to be found in Belsize Park and Hampstead [both north London], Holland Park [west London], Chelsea [southwest London] and Cheapside [City of London].
