The Best Book Events in the City

Covid-19: events cancellation

In light of the continuing coronavirus pandemic, all live events and late shopping evenings at the bookshop have been cancelled until further notice. We will endeavour to keep the conversation flowing with livestreamed events, remotely recorded podcasts and written Q&As on our website. You can buy a limited selection of our favourite books and bestsellers here. Watch this space, keep in touch and keep well.

Out of a mixture of gratitude and admiration, we turn our shop, twice a week or so, into a miniature auditorium in which authors talk about and read from their work, meet their readers, and engage in lively debate about the burning topics of the day. Find out here who’s scheduled to appear.

The London Review Bookshop is also available for hire; email or call (020) 7269 9030 for more information.

We have wheelchair access to the ground floor. If you have any queries regarding disability access at external venues please give us a call.
