This is a fascinating pedestrianised Court in the heart of the West End, and quintessentially English. The shopfronts are quaint and you could browse for hours here looking for old maps, books, 'objets d'art' and other curios. It is only a short walk from Covent Garden but unlike that place has no pretensions to 'crowd-pleasing'. I love to walk through... 更多
Wonderful Antiquarians, possibility to get printed music memorabilia (as programmes, sheet music, magazines) from the 60s and 70s, great for beautiful books as for example early Beatrix Potter editions, folio editions of Oscar Wilde's tales, but also something you can buy as souvenier as some old grubby roman coins.

Cecil Court is the last surviving street of antiquarian booksellers in London - the rents still subsidized b the Duke of Westminster. There are some amazing bookstore on this short street: Stephen Poole & Tindley represent the best. These sellers know their books, and will engage in a deep literary conversation about the merits of a book, the author's work,... 更多
For the average shopper or tourist it might be worth a mini-diversion from Charing Cross Road if one has time to spare. But otherwise, this is more likely to interest those with specialist interests. Even then, it is probably a good idea to check ahead to see if the shop you wish to visit is going to be open, as... 更多
A fun little alley but really suffers from loss of Tracey Brett. She was quite a charactor and one of... 更多
