5 out of 5 stars
(3user reviews)

Just a stone's throw from Herne Hill station, Tales On Moon Lane is easy to find and even easier to spot given its delightful exterior, which is beautifully painted to resemble a circus tent. This lovely local bookshop was founded by Tamara Macfarlane in 2003 and has since provided the tots, toddlers and young adults of southeast London with practical picture books and rad reads.

Regular events are held instore, too, including storytelling sessions, reading and writing classes, literary festivals and half-term activities. Check their website to see what they have coming up.

A brilliant local book shop with magical windows to feed the imaginations of children

Very friendly and knowledgable staff, a great place to go if you want to buy a present but haven't a clue what books children want to read and at what age. Lovely cards, games and window displays too.

Really superb bookshop with wonderful staff who go out of their way to find the right book for every customer. Also has some of the most gorgeous window displays around. (And, of course, a fantastic selection of books!)
