187 Piccadilly, London, England W1J 9LE, United Kingdom

Passionate bookworms can get lost for hours in this charming old-fashioned shop, the oldest surviving bookstore in London. Established in 1797, the shop has served some of the country’s greatest political and literary figures, including Queen Charlotte, Rudyard Kipling and Oscar Wilde. Contemporary writers are equally enchanted by Hatchards and often hold their only London book signings there, resulting in a spectacular collection of signed editions. Behind the antique green façade, more than 100,000 titles are stacked in every nook and cranny of the four-floor interior, which is also home to gorgeous Georgian reproduction chairs and a warm, knowledgeable staff.
