Continuing our amble round London's independent bookshops
The Review Bookshop is a small, but perfectly formed, corner of increasingly gentrified Peckham Rye. It opened four years ago with a focus on art, design and architecture but its main attraction is the leafy garden outside, where you can sit with a freshly made coffee and read your latest purchase, or even play a game of giant backgammon.
If the weather's bad you could always sit on the squishy red leather stools and browse or laugh at some of the rudest postcards we've ever come across. (Like many small local bookshops, Review has branched out into the gift-and-card business.)
It's not all art - there's a choice fiction selection and books for children too. As Slow Down London draws to a close, we think it's the ideal place to carry on the good work and spend some time unwinding over summer.
