Easieset way to buy Fodor's, and other, guidebooks is from (or, one suspects, Barnes and

Few brick and mortar bookstores carry a decent selection of travel guides ... even the large BnNs are embarassingly poor in this regard.

There are a few other sources for travel and adventure books on the Internet ... you'll find URLs for some at

Adeeba: Look for 'Waterstones' - one of the main bookshops.

As you walk up Whitehall from Big Ben/Westminster Palace, and are approaching Trafalgar Square... stay right, as if you are heading for Charing Cross station. you'll walk right smack past a Waterstones - it's been there for YEARS. Go upstairs, the travel section is up there. Can't specifically vouch for a Fodor's being there, but, lotsa Time Out guides - pick up one on London Walks - excellent!

and, if you continue on a little bit & look across the street (not quite across the street from Charing Cross station, but almost) you'll see an Easy Everything - check your email for one pound.

for that matter, if you walk up Charing Cross Road you will see lots and lots of bookshops. all sorts. it's great!

Adeeba, if you can buy one before you go. It's helpful and exciting to read the books before you go or while you're on the plane. Also, even your local bookstore should be able to order a copy for you, if you ask. If not, Amazon is great.

This site as a bookstore locator, which you might like to check:
Ordering the book on or would give you the opportunity to plan your trip in advance. Most of the U.S. international airport terminals also carry the guide books and I see the Fodor's regularly.
If you still need to buy the book in London, look out for the big bookstore chains such as Waterstones, WHSmith and Dillon's. There are several around Oxford Street/Piccadilly/Soho.
If you get the chance, you should visit "Stanford" travel bookstore on Long Acre Street (bewteen Leicester square and Covent Garden), it's an Ali Baba's cave for those into maps and travel!

Harrod's has a great book department, with many many travel guides (Michelin guides are a lot cheaper than in the U.S.).
