Hello lovely people,
today I am here with a new project which is dedicated to sharing my favourite London's bookshops with you. I remember that when I was going to London for the very first time, I spent a lot of time looking for bookish places to visit all over the internet. And to tell the truth, it wasn't really easy to draw some inspiration in this particular area. Consequently, I've decided to go ahead and prepare posts about my favourite bookshops in London. I would like to take it a bit more personally and share my views, photos and tips with you. I am going to show you places where you can get the most beautiful classic editions, places to go for coffee and something to eat, places where you can find second hand books in a very good quality, and places where the bookish atmosphere is the most thrilling. I hope you guys will find it interesting and inspirational, and hopefully my little guides will help you to find some precious books or some other people that enjoy reading as well...

Alright, so today I would like to write about an iconic bookshop in Notting Hill. If you're planning to visit London for the very first time, you definitely must to come over because this bookshop retains its unique atmosphere even in these days and can charge your body and soul with new energy and inspiration. I love this place. I really do. You know, London is very bustling, hectic and stressful city and sometimes it is so difficult to find some place where you could just slow down and find your thoughts again. Every so often I even forget that I actually live in a city where my favourite films take place. It is very easy due to my every day life. So for reminding myself that exciting fact that I can walk on the concrete where Hugh Grant and Julie Roberts were walking, I always travel by Central Line to Notting Hill Gate and take a walk through Portobello Road from which I turn left on Blenheim Crescent where The Notting Hill Bookshop is. And there I just stroll between the bookshelves and indulge my time among books...
