If you're passing by the South Bank, you might be able to spot this makeshift bookshop under the bridge. It doesn't have the widest selection of books, which varies from day to day, but you can be sure that if you look hard enough, you'll find something worthwhile. It's an interesting concept that everyone should check out at least once, and nothing quite compares to browsing second hand books hoping to unearth a treasure. Just make sure you come on a day when the weather isn't too harsh!
