London’s favourite book fair

If you are a collector of rare, secondhand, antiquarian or just generally any books, then the Etc Fairs’ Bloomsbury Book Fair is definitely not to be missed. Regularly featuring over 100 exhibitors, these fairs bring in a wide and varied crowd of exhibitors and punters, with something for every individual taste and budget catered for.

These fairs are also extremely popular with ephemera, map, prints and manuscript dealers & collectors, so expect to be delighted and intrigued by what’s on offer!

Bloomsbury is an area in the very heart of London, historically famous for its association with the arts; the Bloomsbury Group, the [lesser known] Bloomsbury Gang and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood all made it their base at one time or another, and the British Museum sits at its centre, formerly housing the British Library Reading Room.

Religion and academia have their champions & bastions in Bloomsbury too, with Nicholas Hawksmoor’s St George’s Church to the south, and the  The Bloomsbury Colleges (Birkbeck,  SOAS, et al) and UCL to name but a few of the venues for academic excellence that pepper this area of London.

Getting to the Fair

Bloomsbury is also extremely well-placed in London for public transport, with the famous main stations of Kings Cross, St Pancras and Euston all within relatively easy walking distance or by tube/bus. Russell Square tube station, on the Piccadilly Line, is just a couple of minutes away from the Royal National Hotel by foot, and Tottenham Court Road tube station, at one end of the world-renowned Oxford Street shopping area. For more information please visit the Transport for London website.


Should you wish to drive, there is no congestion charge on Sundays and there is free meter parking on many roads around the venue.


Entrance for the Bloomsbury Book Fair is £2 from 10am until 12.30pm and thereafter is free.
