Local Bookshops

The Word Bookshop

314 New Cross Rd, London SE14 6AF, UK – 020 8355 9378

I received a very friendly welcome at this bookshop and was impressed by the breadth of the stock: you'll most likely find what you're looking for here across all genres and subject matters!

Great to see a new independent bookshop where students can pick up what they need, especially since the Goldsmiths shop closed down a while back. Fantastic selection of fiction too (love the £3 section). They've also got a children's books and a graphic novel section. The atmosphere is a bit more lively than most bookshops (there's always music playing, often ska). They've started running some literary events too so worth keeping an eye out to see what they get up to in future.

Tales on Moon Lane

25 Half Moon Ln, Herne Hill, London SE24 9JU, UK – 020 7274 5759

I was really struggling with finding some good books for my 6 year old to read so I popped in to Tales on Moon Lane for some advice. The assistant was very knowledgeable and suggested 9 books. I only intended to buy 1 but bought all 9 (as a birthday present) as they all sounded excellent. And my daughter has loved them all. Highly recommend.

This is a great place to buy children's books. My sons love it here and can spend a long time picking what books are to come home with us. The school holiday events are also good and help bring books alive
