The Smythson Stationery Museum is a small but perfectly formed museum at the back of the New Bond Street shop of British heritage brand Smythson. The firm’s pedigree is evident in official stationery from the Royal Palaces from Queen Victoria onwards, Katharine Hepburn’s engraved address book, a photo of Princes William and Harry sniggering over a Smythson ‘Snogs’ notebook and covetable contemporary leather accessories from stylish fuschia diaries to tangerine passport holders. The Smythson Stationey Museum will no doubt tempt you to splash out on the quality stationery and accessories such as butter-soft leather handbags on sale in the shop – it’s classy stuff.
Smythson is number 85 in our list of the 100 best shops in London.
