Local Bookshops


193 Kensington High St, Kensington, London W8 6SH, UK – 020 7937 8432

A great branch of a chain book store offering a wide range of books and other publishable products. Beautifully arranged and easy to find plus ample space for one to sit around and read there and then as is customary in most London book stores. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable about their book locations and come across that they obviously want to be there.

Great bookstore with a huge selection of titles over three stories. There are several sections of merchandising products as well, making it a good place to also buy gifts. The service was great as I got directions for a couple of things I couldn't find. Otherwise everything is well labeled and distributed. My go-to shop for books in London.

South Kensington Books

22 Thurloe St, Kensington, London SW7 2LT, UK – 020 7589 2916

Amazing bookstore, me and my girlfriend enjoy visiting this place and search for books. The selection is satisfying and you can find different genres of books. The prices are great, much better than the bookstores around the city.

My girlfriend and I were in this store browsing just before a big crowd of horrified people fled the area. The staff in this store remained calm and ensured that we were safe in this store. By the way, the books are fairly priced. A little gem in South Ken.
