London – Stanfords Bookshop

Very close to the Agatha Christie memorial (see previous blog), in Long Acre is Stanfords Bookshop which specialises in travel and maps. The founder, Edward Stanford, began producing maps in 1853. In the late 19th century, Stanfords became the sole agents for Ordnance Survey maps and the store still stocks an amazing collection of maps. A huge vinyl map of the World covers the floor on the ground floor.
