Hatchard's

Hatchards is London’s oldest bookshop, established in 1797 by John Hatchard.

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.
