New York writer Helene Hanff's charming exchange of letters with Frank Doel and the staff of Marks & Co. bookshop made London's Charing Cross Road internationally famous. Sadly, Marks & Co. has been closed for 40 years, but a plaque marks the spot where the shop once stood. Charing Cross and adjacent Cecil Court are still lined with new, used and antiquarian bookstores, and there's even a film and a book about the street, "84 Charing Cross Road." Spend a day exploring your favorite works of literature at Foyles Bookshop, Hatchards (London's oldest bookstore) or Daunt Books.
