"A hidden gem" set in heart of the London School of Economics and Political Science and close to Kings College London, we also serve the whole of our wider business and residential community.

The Economists' Bookshop, not just for economists. 

A 'hidden gem' founded in 1947 by The Economist Magazine & the London School of Economics, we still hold true to those roots with an outstanding range of Economics books & specialist ranges reflecting subjects studied at LSE. We also stock textbooks for Summer School & the External Programmes.

However, we have changed in the past 70 years & have an excellent range of fiction, childrens' & general non-fiction featuring the latest publications.

We buy & sell second-hand books though we are not currently buying due to Covid-19.

Sign up for the Waterstones Plus Card & you'll earn points for every £10 spent; collect 10 points and you'll receive £10 credit.  Our Student Plus Card gives you an additional 5% discount.
