Hazel Broadfoot's and Julian Toland's run a superb, high class bookshop in the heart of Dulwich Village. All the staff have a real enthusiasm, thirst for and knowledge of books. This comes across in the personal advice they give. Locals consider them as friends and count themselves lucky to have such a bookshop on their doorstep. To top it all, they're open seven days a week leaving plenty of time for leisurely Sunday browsing.
