Review of Hatchards

Hatchards
Ranked #55 of 801 Shopping in London

Attraction details
Reviewed 13 May 2014

It's easy to while away an hour in this three story book heaven. There's no coffee shop, no bargain bins but there are books and knowledgeable staff. Each section of its three stories (accessible by lift) has a treasure trove of books. There are comfortable chairs to sit and examine a purchase. Shipping overseas is easily arranged.

No discounts that I could see. A very gracious and impressive shop in what a imagine is a agency or georgian building in the heart of Piccadilly close to places like Fortnums where many people go just to look or buy something just for the carrier bag. Hatchards is more than that. This is a serious book business but it is very well presented and the staff are very helpful. It's all, so far as I could tell, full price, so if you buy a lot or are on a budget then Amazon may be better, but to come in here absorb the atmosphere and find something you handy thought of, and take it away is a very satisfying experience.

An old fashioned bookstore with all the current as well as old classics are in hand here. If you are looking for the history of London they have excellent books on the city.

A must visit for any lover of books in London. No second hand books unfortunately but very impressive lay out and categories especially the floor dedicated to children. Wonderful lighting, wide staircases, comfortable chairs, the British are so good at making you relax in their bookstores and this is one of the best if not the best in London.
