Hatchards is London’s oldest bookshop, established in 1797 by John Hatchard. Its customers have been the literary, political, artistic and social lions of their day and, since its inception, a link has been forged between the fine booksellers of Hatchards and the royal households of Britain and Europe, as demonstrated by the three royal warrants it currently holds. Eight generations of customers and booksellers have come and gone since the shop first opened its doors. Many things have changed but the essence of the place remains the same. Hatchards is a unique British institution. 

London Library members can receive 10% off their purchases at both Hatchards Piccadilly and Hatchards St. Pancras when a valid LL membership card is shown at time of purchase.
