London Review of Books

The London Review of Books is Europe’s leading magazine of culture and ideas. Published twice a month, it provides a space for some of the world’s best writers to explore a wide variety of subjects in exhilarating detail – from art and politics to science and technology via history and philosophy, not to mention fiction and poetry. In the age of the long read, the LRB remains the pre-eminent exponent of the intellectual essay, admired around the world for its fearlessness, its range and its elegance.

Alive with the same independent spirit as the magazine, the London Review Bookshop’s impeccable taste, evangelical booksellers and blockbuster programme of author and panel events have made it the city’s favourite place to pass the time in the company of writers and readers. Find us in Bloomsbury, two minutes from the British Museum.
