Better get my travel card at the ready again, I was so excited to see the new V&A Reading Rooms. A stand alone bookshop, by the V&A that has for sale a constantly changing range of over 1,000 titles. Some out of print, vintage and early editions will also be for sale. The store is in a wonderful old building and has kept it’s original architectural features, bright white high ceilings, fine cornices and bay windows.
The shop also has a wine bar, so you will be able to read with a glass of your favourite, I’ll take the Fresh Mint Tea, and don’t forget to grab something great to eat for your table. Quail’s Eggs with Celery Salt, Lemon Almonds, I am as excited by the promise of the delicious looking edibles as I am of choosing a stack of beautiful books to pour over.
All images V&A Reading Rooms, at 8 Exhibition Road will be open daily, from midday until 10.00pm.
