Picture of Kirkdale Bookshop

Kirkdale Bookshop

Bookshop in Sydenham, very near Sydenham Station.

Second-hand (from 20p) and antiquarian (a bit more expensive...) books, plus fiction, biographies, etc. Has a decent local history section covering Sydenham, Crystal Palace, Forest Hill, etc. Even had a couple of graphic novels in stock.

Has gallery space for local artists, and I believe some kind of coffee shop too.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. Make sure you check out the basement too (it's not obvious that there's a lot more than the little front bit if you're not familiar with the shop).
