Established in 1797 by John Hatchard, Hatchards Booksellers is London’s oldest bookshop, Hatchard, a young bookseller himself, spent the majority of his adolescence working in London’s ‘literary coffee houses’. The bookshop has occupied the Georgian building it is currently located in for over two centuries on one of the most famous streets in the world, Piccadilly. A beloved landmark institution, Hatchards’ customers have been the literary, political, artistic and social lions of their day. Currently holding three royal warrants, issued to tradespeople who supply goods or services to the British Monarchy and Royal Court, Hatchards has a deep link with the royal households of not only Britain, but Europe. Although many things have changed during the eight generations of customers and booksellers that have come and gone since the shop first opened its doors, the essence of the place still remains the same and is unchangeable.

Daunt Books, founded in 1990 by James Daunt, is located in a beautiful Edwardian building on Marylebone High Street. Originally built in 1920 for the antiquarian booksellers, Francis Edwards, the shop has maintained the original essence. Regarded as one of the first custom built bookshops, the long galleried main room focuses on a beautiful arched window partly glazed with stained glass and bordered by cast iron light fixtures.

The bookstore’s original intention was to arrange the books principally by country, whether to book was fiction, non-fiction, history etc. encouraging a unique browsing for the wanderer and general reader. This original ordering system is still utilized today, as Daunt Bookstore specializes the best selection of travel books in London.
