Local Bookshops


131 Bellenden Rd, London SE15 4QY, UK – 020 7639 7400

Favourite bookshop in all of London! The woman who works there is so friendly and helpful, great selection of books and if they don't have it they'll happily order it in. It's not giant so one wouldn't be overwhelmed. Great spot!

Lovely corner bookshop of the independent kind now so rare on our streets. Kind of place you can feel relaxed haunting. Leaf through a book read a chapter or more surreptitiously. ... great place, helpful owner.

Book Mongers

439 Coldharbour Ln, Brixton, London SW9 8LN, UK – 020 7738 4225

Fantastic book shop, huge variety of books in many many genres. The guy running the place clearly knows his stuff and was extremely helpful, even though I was throwing some very weird/niche topic areas. Would recommend just to walk around for half an hour! Real hidden gem!

Fantastic second-hand bookshop, something for everyone, different genres clearly marked. Very reasonable prices. Not to mention the friendly helpful staff/owner. Sadly one of the last bastions of the Brixton community that's been all but pushed out.

Tales on Moon Lane

25 Half Moon Ln, Herne Hill, London SE24 9JU, UK – 020 7274 5759

I was really struggling with finding some good books for my 6 year old to read so I popped in to Tales on Moon Lane for some advice. The assistant was very knowledgeable and suggested 9 books. I only intended to buy 1 but bought all 9 (as a birthday present) as they all sounded excellent. And my daughter has loved them all. Highly recommend.

This is a great place to buy children's books. My sons love it here and can spend a long time picking what books are to come home with us. The school holiday events are also good and help bring books alive
