It was a few months ago, when I was walking around London, that I came across Daunt Books. They have several stores in London, but the main (and one I had come across) is on Marylebone High Street.
What struck me immediately was how beautiful the store was. Its an original Edwardian bookshop with loads of original features. Inside you are surrounded by woodwork. Make your way back into the shop and you can climb sets of narrow steps up to long oak galleries, where its possible to look down on all the bustle of the main store.
The shop specialises in travel books, arranged by country, but it also houses lots of fiction (including children's) and some other non-fiction as well.
If you're in the area then its certainly worth popping in to enjoy a browsing session. And if you like going on holiday with a book (fiction or non-fiction) about where you're going then this is definitely the place to buy it!
Where do you buy your holiday books?
