Bookstore Tourism London

Lined with mellow oak paneling, bathed in natural light from  tall glass roof, Daunt books in Marylebone London is an elegant and calm oasis for visiting bibliophiles. The sedate, Edwardian building provides a pitch-perfect setting for one of the city’s best-loved bookshops. Browsing Daunt you will discover the bookseller’s idiosyncratic shelving system, where books are arranged by nation regardless of genre. For example, American works of fiction (On the Road or The Great Gatsby) are displayed with U.S. travel guidebooks (Lonely Planet New York City or Fodor’s Chicago) and  American cookbooks. Recently released titles occupy the front of the shop, while quiet rear galleries and beautiful mezzanine  provide quiet spaces for hours of browsing.
