Broadway Bookshop

    Located on Broadway Market (East London’s popular hipster haunt), Broadway Books caters more towards the discerning reader than your average bookstore might. The store was founded in 2005 by Jane Howe, who had previously worked in a vast number of bookshops and in her own words “wanted to bring good reading matter to East London.” On offer is a wide selection of literary fiction (with staff on hand to advise on lesser known classic novels) in addition to poetry, travel literature, philosophy and a large children’s section. As the store is based in East London, there is a great deal of literature about the area’s history as well as several books offering a more general background on London for those who are interested. Twice a month, the store also holds talks and readings with authors on a number of topics, such as London’s infamous Victorian lunatic asylums and ghost sightings throughout the centuries – great fun for bibliophiles and history buffs alike.Show lessRead more
