Brick Lane Bookshop


If you happen to be in London’s East End anytime soon, I’d highly recommend the quite wonderful Brick Lane Bookshop, one of the few independents left, so well worth supporting: it first appeared in Watney Market and, until a few years ago, was known as Eastside Books. Particularly strong on poetry, philosophy and politics. Best day to go? Probably Sunday, market day and an absolute hive of activity.
