This was definitely one of the highlights of our visit to Marylebone. The selection of book from foreign writers is excellent and represents some of the best writers of each country. The atmosphere is very special and the staff are very friendly.

Great selection of travel books. They have a special area for books on Europe. I was interested in seeing what on Ireland were on their shelves. I was surprised to learn that they do not regard Ireland as part of Europe. Ireland books are placed on a different floor along with England, Wales and Scotland. They should learn a little history and some geography.

This place really is outstanding, and I have before been known to refer to it as the loveliest bookshop in England. It has a superb selection of travel books - the best anywhere, I find - but also has a good range of fiction and other non-fiction too. The staff are helpful and well-informed. And the fact that is such a beautiful Edwardian building makes it a real pleasure to shop there.
The only drawback is that they don't do online sales. But then that, of course, encourages me to go there. As it does with all their customers.
It's situated on Marylebone High Street, which is a good shopping street and also has a wealth of lovely restaurants and pubs etc.
It has other branches in Chelsea and on Cheapside in the City. If only they had taken over the old Grindley's bookshop in my home town of Leigh-on-Sea which is, sadly, now without a good bookshop.

We usually go to Waterstones when in London, but this is a gem newly discovered. The staff is competent, friendly and a bit quirky, as is the shop itself. Beautiful and well stocked, we will visit again for sure. Great international sections.
