Buy books at Travelling Through...

It always takes your author much longer and others to get to new openings, and yesterday an opportunity finally arose for a browse at Travelling Through..., the new travel bookshop and café on Lower Marsh near Waterloo which opened in October 2014. Inside the tiny little shop sit shelves packed full of interesting books arranged by place, walls adorned with art and a pleasant little café and terrace downstairs.

It's a homely little place, run by the friendly former cultural heritage conservationist Emma Carmichael, and all readers are encouraged to visit on the first available opportunity (or at least their next pre-6pm commute through Waterloo). For anyone who needs to invent a reason to pop into such a beautiful bookshop, the downstairs gallery is now hosting a new free exhibition of photographs of prefab housing, taken by Elisabeth Blanchet (formerly of the late Prefab Museum in Catford). Go armed with pocket money and an empty book bag...
