Five of the best London stationery shops

London Graphic Centre

Shopping Art, craft and hobbies Seven Dials

The Covent Garden flagship has a fantastic array of pens and pencils; particularly helpful if you’ve developed a brush lettering and modern calligraphy addiction, and need to stock up on supplies! You’ll also find a good range of basic notebooks, large pads for posters and some fun art supplies.

Shopping Art, craft and hobbies Clerkenwell

A geometric utopia where everything is neatly arranged, ordered and aligned. Their collections blend the latest designs from Japan and Scandinavia, with vintage items sourced from across Europe. The result is a nostalgic tribute to a life-long love of stationery. Their blog and insta-feed are also both suitably dreamy.

Choosing Keeping

Shopping Art, craft and hobbies Seven Dials

On market day, Choosing Keeping is a peaceful haven, tucked away from the rabble of flower-wielding Columbia Road shoppers. The large central table hosts pots of lovely metallic biros, neon fountain pens and pastel pencils. Exploring the walled shelves uncovers pretty papers, hand-bound notebooks and a shrine to staplers.

Selfridges

Shopping Bakeries Oxford Street

Selfridges has a wonderful stationery selection and stocks some of my absolute favourite brands. Highlights include Muji’s simple staples, Hay’s colourful statement pieces and The School of Life’s ‘Big Thinker’ notebooks. Make sure you explore the larger permanent concessions in the basement as well as the colour-blocked displays on the ground floor.
