  • Opening in 1797, this is the oldest book shop in Britain and once stocked the country house libraries of Britains aristocrats. Byron, Wellington, Disraeli and Wilde were all regular customers.
  • An excellent bookstore. It has to compete with the slightly larger Waterstones down the road, but this bookshop certainly holds its own with its history and royal connections.
