Hatchards offers an extraordinary selection of primarily new, but also used books. The quality and diversity of the selections are exceptional. Difficult to enter and not find a handful of books of interest. They mail to the US, but postage is expensive.

My dream job is to be the person who curates the book display tables at Hatchards. I love the sometimes extenuated connections among the books on a particular table, and how they lead me deeper and deeper into an exploration of possible reads. In particular,...More

Stunning bookstore - I always come here when in need of some inspiration. They do sell lots of signed books, which is great, as well as host events. Knowledgeable staff, beautiful cards and stationery. Lovely part of London too.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
