Cecil Court

Cecil Court is a unique place for book lovers. Located in the very heart of the west-end in London, a moment's walk from Leicester Square Tube Station, Cecil Court is a picturesque late Victorian thoroughfare linking Charing Cross Road and St Martin's Lane, pedestrianised and seemingly immune from the bustle of the great city which surrounds it.



The shopfronts have not been altered in more than a century and the traditional hanging signs announce specialists in rare, collectible and antiquarian books, maps and prints and all manner of related printed material including stamps and banknotes.



Whether you are looking for weighty sixteenth-century folios, modern first editions, early maps of your area, theatre posters, children's books and more besides, someone in Cecil Court will be able to assist.
