"Map your travels all over the w0rld!!" Books Tip by mollymoo0oo0

Books, London: 65 reviews and 69 photos

In their own words, 'Stanfords is the UK’s leading specialist retailer of maps, travel books and other travel accessories, having been established in 1853 by Edward Stanford. Our flagship store in Covent Garden, London, first opened its doors in January 1901 and can justly claim to offer the world’s largest stock of maps and travel books under one roof. '

I love this place!! Stacked full of books, maps and much more for the traveller, travel-lover or dreamer about the w0rld we live in...

What to buy: You can buy maps of all kinds for all over the w0rld, and I've used it for buying many a city map before wandering off on an adventure somewhere (saving time and money when I arrive!)

Also there are plenty of other travel memorabilia here, and it's fantastic for gifts for a fellow lover of travel :)

What to pay: Varies... prices are average, it's the quality of service and range of goods that excel here!

Address: 12-14 Long Acre, Covent Garden, London WC2E 9LP
