Soho Books - Licensed Sex Shop



The first Soho Books was established on Brewer Street in 1993 and since then the group has grown from a single store to an independent chain with cult status in London.

The unique stores combine outstanding bookshops with licensed sex shops in a friendly, bright and welcoming environment.

On the ground floor of each store can be found an extensive range of book titles with a list of fields to match any store in the capital: advertising, art, architecture, children's storeies, cooking, design, erotica, health, history, photography and travel, to name just a few.

Whether it is fiction or fashion you are looking for, there are exclusive imports and one-off titles which would grace even the most particular of coffee tables. The stores also stock rare fashion and design magazines, as well as a great selection of art and gift cards.
