London stationery stores?

I would love to explore stores in London with great journals,
pens, notecards, and such.

Any recommendations?

Thank you!

I've bought stationery, pens, etc at Smythson, Liberty, and Fortnum & Mason. Most of the posh departments stores carry lovely stationery, paper products and high end pens . . . Harrods, Fortnum's, Selfridge's etc. There is (or used to be) a wonderful pen shop in the Burlington Arcade but I can't remember the name.

Smythson; the one in Bond Street had a corner with stationery from the rich and famous.
Mount Street printers on Mount Street
And the department stores as Janisj says.
Waterstones on Piccadilly also has a nice selection of notebooks and cards.

The British Library bookshop might be of interest as well, also museum shops such as the V&A or the Design Museum if you happen to be going that way.

Re PatrickLondon's suggestion -- yes, definitely check out the gift shops in all the museums and galleries. Places like the V&A, the Tate's, British Museum, National Gallery, etc carry all sorts of journals and such. Not often high end fountain pens (though the V&A certainly might) but good selections.

Another one: Wren Press in Curzon Street. Extremely chique. They seem to do mainly bespoke invitations but have a range of cards as well.
This is gorgeous stationery.

Pop into Shepherds Market for a drink or lunch while you're in that area.
