If you like bookstores and you are in the area (and here are a few must-visit museums - Victoria and Albert and Natural History for example) go, do not regret.

  • Lovely little bookstore nestled amongst the shops and eateries of South Kensington! You can find some very reasonably priced paperbacks here, and a large sale bin. Decent variety for the size of the place, and it can get a bit crowded.
