Oldest Bookstore in London

Hi! I hope everyone's day is coming along nicely! Mine has been wonderful. 

You may have noticed that the title of my blog includes the name Byron, which represents my love for Lord Byron and his poetry. In fact, I am even writing a paper about him during my time in London for one of my classes. I intend to start writing more about books on this blog, as I have mentioned before. 

So what could have been more fitting than visiting London's oldest book shop?! Today I got to peruse the shelves of Hatchard's in Piccadilly and it was incredible to say the least. 

Hatchards started selling books in 1797 and they have remained there ever since!

Every inch of the store was filled with books on subjects ranging from history of Britain, to classic novels. They also had a wonderful section of stationary and charming thank you notes that I just adored. 

Everything was organized and I could have spent hours in there just looking. If you are a book lover and are ever in London I highly recommend taking a peek. :)

Have a wonderful rest of your day!


  1. This place looks magical! Would loved to have seen the interior of the shop though. Any tips on how to get there?


    1. It was magical! And I will remember that next time :) If you take the tube you can get off at Piccadilly Circus and it's near the tube station.
