Cecil Court セシルコート

Before coming to London, I wondered if there are bookshop districts like Kanda Jimbocho of Tokyo in London, I gained the knowledge that there were famous Cecil Court and Charing Cross street.
I visited Cecil Court, there were a lot of bookshops in both sides of the streets. I fell into the illusion that I went back to the time of old London.

According to HP of Cecil Court, the Cecil Court is a picturesque late Victorian thoroughfare.
The shopfronts have not been altered in more than a century and the traditional hanging signs announce specialists in rare and antiquarian books, maps and prints.
And I learned later, the famous composer Mozart stayed at one time in this street.

As I entered one of the shops, I felt quiet and homey atmosphere. Surely this street would be a place like paradise for book lovers.
