Lambeth is a diverse area, both geographically and culturally. It ranges from Vauxhall at its most northern point to Streatham at its most southerly; in between you will find parts of Clapham, Brixton and Camberwell. This veritable tranche of London culture is served by a number of independent bookshops, find some of the best below.
This secondhand bookshop is notable for its eccentric interior and eclectic selection. The owner of Book Mongers is no different and it is not uncommon to find his dog there to while you either browse the shelves or sit down to read on the sofa in the middle of the shop floor. If you have ever seen the show Black Books and yearn to live it, this be a good place to start.
