Daunt Books

Boasting long oak galleries and graceful skylights, Daunt is one of London’s most beautiful bookshops. Originally specialising in travel, the shop now sells an array of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, history and children’s books as well, and is noted for the innovative way it arranges its books, with texts grouped by their relevant country. Each month Daunt hosts a range of readings and events featuring the likes of William Boyd, Michael Palin, Alexander McCall Smith and Jan Morris.
