Now closed; was an old-fashioned independent second-hand/antiquarian bookshop in Eastcote.

The information below is retained for people who want to know what it used to be like.

An old-fashioned independent second-hand/antiquarian bookshop in Eastcote.

Full use is made of the space inside, with only narrow aisles between the bookshelves, and books piled up everywhere photo. The eclectic subject selection includes (to choose just a few examples) photography, British politicians, poetry, China, needlework, London, and lots more. Fiction is not neglected, with a decent-sized SF section including an entire bookcase dedicated to Terry Pratchett.

This is the sort of bookshop where you find things you never knew you wanted, and where you can lose hours to just sorting through the treasures on offer.

Accessibility: Level access to get in, but the aisles are very narrow and cluttered. There might have been a step to get to the books at the back (not sure).
