Hatchards logo

Hatchards is London’s oldest bookshop, established in 1797 by John Hatchard. Since then Hatchards has been a landmark on one of the finest and most famous streets in the world, Piccadilly, occupying the current building at number 187 for over two centuries. 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. 

Member Offer

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.

Slightly Foxed

Slightly Foxed Members Offer

In case you haven’t yet come across it, Slightly Foxed is a rather unusual quarterly book review. Unaffected by the winds of fashion and the hype of the big publishers, for the past thirteen years it’s been introducing its readers to some of the thousands of good books that long ago disappeared from the review pages and often from bookshop shelves. Companionable and unstuffy, it has a wide range of contributors – some well-known, some not – who all write personally and entertainingly about the books they choose. It’s not so much a review magazine as a magazine of enthusiasms. London Library members, we’ve discovered, tend to be Slightly Foxed kind of people too, addicted readers who love its quirky tone, its neat format and elegant look. So if you haven’t yet come across it, why not give it a try?

Member Offer

Slightly Foxed are offering London Library members a complimentary smart jute book bag and a 10% discount on all subscriptions and gift subscriptions.Subscriptions include 4 printed issues per year; access to full digital archive of back issues; and reduced rates on all Slightly Foxed books and goods. To claim the offer visit and checkout using code LLMEMBERS, or call 020 7033 0258 and order over the phone.
