About us

Founded in 1946, the bookshop has developed in harmony with the School.

Our stock range mirrors disciplines studied at LSE covering all areas of the social sciences especially politics, philosophy, law, business, finance, and an outstanding range in economics.  Why not also browse our second hand and remainder titles?

We supply textbooks for LSE students including those attending Summer School or studying via the External Programmes.

We also reflect the non-academic needs of our wider local community broadening our range to include fiction, children’s and travel to name but a few. 

We offer a competitive mailing service to all parts of the world and our textbook buyback scheme gives students further savings.

Opening hours

Monday – Friday: 10am – 6:30pm
Saturday: 12 noon – 6pm
Sunday and bank holidays: closed


We are located on LSE's campus in St Clements on Clare Market, in front of the Library.

The nearest underground station is Holborn. Turn left out of the station and walk down Kingsway. Turn left at the Peacock Theatre and we are straight ahead.
