Any Amount of Books The Charing Cross Road Bookshop


We are limiting the numbers of customers in the shop and you will need to wear a face mask for the safety of all our staff, our customers and the wider community. But as a result there's plenty of space to browse calmly and there is usualy no queueing. We have new stock going out daily across all sections.

We completely understand concerns customers may have on travelling into central London, and we do not want to encourage anyone to make unnecessary journeys. But we would love to see you in the bookshop.

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.
