My humble first post on one of my favourite bookshops in London.
48a Charing Cross Road,
London WC2H 0BB
Tel. 020 7379 7669
Website: Quinto Bookshop
Language: Majority English and a great selection of books in major European languages
Genre: Wide selection of naval and maritime, military, history, art, literature, science, natural history and social sciences.
Charing Cross Road is arguably the most famous street of second-hand bookstores but unfortunately, many have closed due to the rising rental over the years. Quinto is one of the few remaining second-hand bookshops which still stands after three decades there. The shop has been a bookstore for more than a century. In the bookshop, houses Francis Edwards Antiquarian Booksellers and Quinto's general selection of second-hand books which take up the ground and basement levels of the building.

One of my favourite hunts when I was in London. A charming little place which never fails to lure me to a 10-minute walk from my workplace during lunch to explore their labyrinthic bookshelves.
