Books are a unique and special way to connect with people, where you can value a new friendship by sharing a favourite book. Supporting independent bookshops are so important in South London communities, appreciating the hard work these business owners put in to giving you fresh and exciting stories. Here’s our 5 favourite bookshops in Lambeth Borough!
If you’re against the rise of the international book-sellers and want to make a difference, this is for you. Independent bookshops are a sacred haven for book lovers, who can spend hours perusing the shelves and soaking up the atmosphere. Not to mention the person behind the counter giving recommendations is a book lover too, not just a Saturday job teen or an anonymous Amazon reviewer (choosing to believe the one star reviews or the five star reviews is a minefield we have all faced). Or maybe you aren’t a bookshop lover (yet), but you’re interested in the hype. Either way, South London has something to offer.
