Work with us:

Please follow us on our instagram and twitter accounts for updates on vacancies.

If your desire is to have a job selling second hand books and you have bookshop experience please get in touch with us. We may not have any immediate vacancies, but we sometimes have a need for casual cover which is a great way to start. You should understand that bookselling is often about hefting boxes of books, you should care about how a bookshop looks and you really need to be interested in books.


Continuing tradition…and keeping London in books

There has been a book shop at 56 Charing Cross since the 1920s, if not earlier.

56 Charing Cross Road in the 1920s, when the shop was owned by the folklorist AH Mayhew. The entrance, lighting, signs and staff attire have changed since then, but we still have our shelves of books outside the shop.
