Nicknamed Bookseller’s Row, Cecil Court is a hidden gem in the heart of central London. (📸 by @frankie.andrea) • This lovely alley is packed with twenty-odd secondhand bookshops and antiquarian booksellers, and the shop fronts haven’t changed for over a century. Inside the stores, you’ll find anything from rare books, collector’s copies and first-editions, to old stamps, maps, posters and banknotes. • It’s also thought to be the thoroughfare that inspired Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley and, with its eccentric shops—some of which are even associated with magical or psychic literature—it’s easy to believe. • 👉 To find out more fun facts about Cecil Court, follow the link in our bio.
