If you’re a lover of literature and want to discover some classic English authors, then London is heaven for the avid reader.
There are so many fantastic bookshops located close to the Montcalm London that you’re sure to find the perfect addition for your library at home or pick up something that you simply won’t be able to put down during your stay.
Here’s our selection of the best bookshops and around Marble Arch and how to get there from the The Marble Arch London.
Located in a beautiful Edwardian building, Daunt Books provides an eclectic selection of out of print and modern books ideal for readers with varying tastes.
With its quirky interior and unusual selection of literature that you won’t find in modern bookstores, you’re bound to find a treasure or two nestled amongst the antique shelving.
To reach the shop from our The Montcalm London, you can either take a brisk stroll to Bond Street in just over 15-minutes or if the weather isn’t looking too promising, then head to Marble Arch Tube station and take the Central Line – it runs every three minutes and takes just thirteen minutes to arrive.
If you’re looking for that special signed book or first edition, then you will love the array of old and new titles available at Goldsboro Books near Leicester Square. Staying at one of our City Hotels London is an excellent choice for anyone visiting the city, but we suggest that our the Piccadilly London West End is best situated for this book store as it is close to major Tube links.
Getting to Goldsboro Books takes just 15-minutes by Tube, so look out for the Victorian shop façade and black signage. Once you’ve found that special book, take your time to enjoy it at one of The Montcalm London Afternoon Tea sittings that are held every day.
Tucked away on a quiet Mayfair side street, you’ll find Heywood Hill. This is a great spot for readers who are seeking inspiration for their next book as the staff are on hand to offer a selection of inspirational works from authors from the past and present.
To get there from the The Montcalm London, hop on the Tube from Marble Arch Station, and you’ll arrive at your destination in just 11-minutes.
If you fancy a stroll to enjoy some of London’s greenery, you can cut through Hyde Park from our hotel for a scenic walk to take in the beautiful trees and gardens before exiting the park at the North entrance.
From there, the Heywood Hill bookshop is just a short walk, so enjoy the fresh air and literature that London has to offer during your stay in the Marble arch area that’s been home to literary geniuses for hundreds of years.
