Good bookshop. I find it quite hot in the winter if you come from outside all wrapped up make sure you take your coat off first.

Good resource but prices need to be varied for professionals and students

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.
