Historic, high-end stationers with four Royal Warrants.

Grace Kelly, Queen Victoria and Madonna have all visited this traditional, British stationary store, first opened in 1887. Four royal warrants later and the shop remains the height of traditional exclusivity and elegance – whilst also attracting a young, trendy crowd, drawn to its unique, customised service and high-quality fashion accessories. Specialising in bespoke stationery, leather goods and diaries, Smythson’s have continued a tradition of over 100 years of quality - a visit to their historic Bond Street shop is something of a return to the source. Gilded or embossed, bound or buckled, their luxurious goods have spread worldwide. Invest in a personalised stationery gift set available in a whole spectrum of colourful paper hues or opt for a tasty cherry red backgammon set. Manicure sets, desk accessories, themed notebooks and photo albums are also there to tempt the keen shopper. Great for a unique taste of old England combined with a hint of cutting-edge flair.

Best for:
Diaries, desk accessories, backgammon and bags, Madonna to Queen Victoria, stationary and service.

There is a Smythson store on West 57th Street in New York.
