Buy books at Daunt Books, Marylebone

If you're looking for that last minute Christmas present, you could do worse than try the original Daunt Books on Marylebone High Street. A travel bookshop, with books arranged around the store by country, Daunt's main Edwardian store is known for its long oak galleries.

Its dark green and oak frontage, and beautiful interior with William Morris prints and skylights, have led to its being described as the most beautiful bookshop in London in the Daily Telegraph, and during the day the skylights also help to make the interior light and welcoming.

This is the perfect travellers bookshop. For more, see http://www.dauntbooks.co.uk/


  1. Visited this place in August and it is one of my favourite bookstores of all time

  2. I'd like a book on France as we're planning to go there for our honeymoon in spring next year. thanks for the info, will have to visit in the New Year!

  3. Daunt is pretty but I recommend Stanford's in Covent Garden as a source for travel books. Especially strong on their road maps.

  4. I like Stanford's, but I personally think Daunt is better, probably just because they've had books in the past that I wanted that Stanford's hasn't.

    They're both excellent shops anyway.

  5. A wonderful, wonderful store with a fantastic, helpful staff. I highly recommend it.

  6. Great store, and lovely to browse around. I also went to a fantastic book launch here last year. Happy days!
