  • Visitor Information

Well known Soho bookshop with licensed sex shop downstairs and neon lights advertising 'XXX booths' in the window. However, it's not the sole preserve of dirty old men in macs - you can also find good deals on perfectly respectable books from the classics to cookery stacked up on the shelves on the entry level ground floor. There are plenty of adult bookshops in this part of Soho - many mixing up erotic literature with fashion tomes and coffee table books. Whether this is the 'original' such shop remains to be seen but it's certainly been here on Brewer Street for as long as we can remember.
