Our doors are closed until further notice, but we're open for orders.

Brick Lane Bookshop is an independent bookshop on Brick Lane, London.

Brick Lane Bookshop first appeared in Watney Market, under the guise of Tower Hamlets Art Projects (THAP). Up until a few years ago, we were known as  Eastside Books.

Now, more than thirty years on, as Brick Lane Bookshop, we're still going and are happy to provide the East End with books, browsing, personal service and a fast ordering ability.
