Daunt Books

Shop & Service

Europe, United Kingdom, London

Daunt Books is an original Edwardian bookshop with long oak galleries, graceful skylights and William Morris prints, situated in Marylebone High Street, London. There are also branches in Chelsea, Holland Park, Cheapside, Hampstead and Belsize Park. Specialising in travel, Daunt Books arranges its sections geographically - with guides, phrase books, travel writing, history and fiction grouped by their relevant country. In addition, you can find an extensive range of children's books, cookery, poetry, art and design. Daunt Books is also known for its customer service, with the knowledgeable staff on hand to offer advice and recommendations. Each branch regularly organises author talks and discussions. Previous events include Alexander McCall Smith, Hilary Mantel and Michael Palin. In 2010, Daunt Books launched its publishing venture with Saki's Improper Stories, and has since republished A Favourite of the Gods by Sybille Bedford, to coincide with her centenary. Forthcoming titles will comprise literary fiction and non-fiction, both forgotten titles and new works.
