Visited their Marylebone High Street shop - what a fantastic book store! Their travel section was huge, with rooms devoted to certain areas; lots of vintage books plus the standard new books. Loved exploring the mezzanine for vintage Batsford guides (none found) but I bought...More

Really enjoy this place - good collection of both travel, fiction and non-fiction though nothing hugely niche. They have really good events with authors fairly often and the staff are friendly & attentive

Favourite spot for inspiration in London - I would also recommend their branch in Chelsea (158-164 Fulham Rd), which is fun as well, with more of a focus on general books, than travel.

This is a fantastic bookshop with an unrivalled selection of travel books covering all corners of the globe. Staff are also very pleasant and helpful. It's a relatively short walk from Baker Street tube station via Marylebone Rd and Marylebone High Street. Well worth a...More

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
