Covid-19 Update – 3rd April

In line with the new restrictions introduced by the government on Monday 23rd March, we will now have to operate from behind closed doors (unless bookshops are classified as an ‘essential service’ as is now the case in several European countries), and offer you a remote service for the next three weeks.

This means that we can take email or telephone orders — from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm, Monday to Saturday — and supply books to you via the postal service. We will be able to process payments over the phone — please do call us on +44 (0)207 586 2022, or email with your requests.

At present, all our suppliers are closed, which means we are limited to titles currently in stock – still over 10,000 books. We are also still recieving some new releases. Shipping to any UK address will be £4 for most orders – please phone or email for more details.

Although you will temporarily be deprived of the pleasure of browsing our shelves, do please feel free to ask for advice and suggestions. You may also wish to add your name to our mailing list using the form below for updates on new titles as they arrive.

Thank you for your many good wishes and offers of support. Take care, stay well, and best wishes from us all,

Jessica Graham

The bookshop is situated in a Victorian terrace two minutes walk from Primrose Hill

The best natural vantage point in London for a spectacular view of the whole city – and just to the north of Regent’s Park and London Zoo.
