Buy books at Stanfords

Tomorrow evening, your author will be celebrating the release of 'London, The Weekends Start Here: Fifty-two Weekends of Things to See and Do' at Britain's best travel bookshop, Stanfords in Covent Garden, and all readers of this website are invited. It's an honour to be able to launch it in such a historic venue, for Stanfords traces its history back to 1853, and has been trading from the same premises at 12-14 Long Acre since 1873.

It was to Stanfords on Long Acre that famous travellers like David Livingston, Robert Falcon Scott and  Ernest Shackleton and Sir Edmund Hillary came to find the maps and guides that fed their thirst for adventure, and the shop continues to attract modern adventurers like Ranulph Fiennes, Michael Palin, Bear Grylls and others. Truly, Britain's greatest explorers have always gone to Stanfords, and for as long as the doors remain open, they will continue to do so.

  1. I honestly wish I could attend the release. Stanfords is one of my favorite shops in London (the collection, the building... I'm always in awe during my visits), and the title of the book sounds really interesting.
