Hatchards

Books in The West End

London's oldest bookshop dates back to 1797. Holding three royal warrants, it's a stupendous bookshop now in the Waterstones (a British book retailer) stable, with a solid supply of signed editions and bursting at its smart seams with very browsable stock. There's a strong selection of 1st editions on the ground floor and regularly scheduled literary events.
