'Inside London's Oldest Bookshop'

Shelf Awareness

An inside look at the "positively Dickensian" Hatchards, London's oldest bookshop, was offered by Londonist, which noted that the shop "was opened by a chap called John Hatchard in 1797, and has been in its current Piccadilly home for over 200 years....

You're unlikely to find a tome for sale in here that you wouldn't find anywhere else in London, but for books with a side of nostalgia, head to Hatchards. On a drizzly day, with the sound of buses splashing through the puddles outside on Piccadilly, it's a warming place to be."
