Hatchards, London’s oldest bookshop

Established in 1797 and still in its same elegant (if much expanded) premises, and still muzac-free despite being owned by Waterstone’s.

A general bookshop on five floors with a good range of books – including decent art and philosophy sections – and friendly, informative staff

Open seven days a week
