Any Amount of Books The Charing Cross Road Bookshop

We are open every day and we continue to put out new stock on a daily basis

July 19th Update:
During the January to April lockdown we added ventilation to the downstairs rooms and other parts of the shop to make shopping with us safer and more pleasant.
But with England in the middle of a large 3rd wave and the added risk of the Delta variant we still need other mitigations in place.

Therefore we continue to require all customers to wear a face mask inside the bookshop (unless they have a valid medical reason or a disability that prevents them wearing a face covering)

Thank you for supporting public health in our community.

Come in and browse and find yourself pleasantly surprised in a real shop with helpful staff that has become part of the fabric of the street.

We are very proud to keep the tradition of secondhand bookselling alive on Charing Cross Road. We are the perfect place to browse and find that unusual gift for someone special, or just for yourself.
Located just a minute away from Leicester Square underground station on Charing Cross Road, a street synonymous with secondhand bookselling and book stores in London.

We are well known for our wide ranging selection of books in the shop.
From £1.00 bargains to rare collectors' gems.

Rare books, first editions, modern literature, art, poetry, history, literary criticism, scholarly/academic, antiquarian, leather bound sets, uncorrected proofs, and of course our much loved and sought after general stock that is always updated daily.
Such a satisfying experience for anyone who loves spending an afternoon looking through floor-to-ceiling stacks of used, scholarly books. With new books coming in every day and a basement full of older and on sale books, it really does not get better--nor more affordable--than Any Amount of Books.
