This place is massive and has a wonderful array of books. I must say I found it very difficult to get staff's attention. It was like as if they pretended to not see me so they wouldn't have to help me.

However, the staff who I did manage to flag down were able to quickly help me find the book I was looking for.

Secret Squirrel Time:

The top floor bar has one of the best views of London's rooftops for somewhere relatively unknown, relatively cheap and not exclusive in any way.

You will earn BIG plus pluses if you arrange to meet your date up here, and after a couple of glasses of wine you have Europe's biggest bookstore to play in. You can tippsily browse the travel guides and plan your first dirty...more
