London Store

187 Piccadilly


Hatchards bookstore is a London's oldest bookstore and a British institution, founded in 1797 by John Hatchard, publisher and anti-slavery campaigner. Eight generations of customers and booksellers have come and gone since the shop first opened its doors and many things have changed, but the essence of 187 Piccadilly remains the same. Renowned for their knowledge, expertise and reading recommendations the bookshop remains a literary haven for authors offering collectors' editions, specially author-signed books, a subscription service and The Hatchards Library.

"Hatchards may be over two centuries old but it combines the best of the new with a fine, old tradition."
