[UPDATE] Galloway & Porter has closed its doors as of June 2010
Galloway and Porter, 30 Sidney Street, (near entrance to Sidney Sussex College and opposite Sainsbury's supermarket) - reduced and second hand books; particularly good selection of L1 new paperbacks (fiction & non fiction) in the entrance, plus travel guide books, art, academic, children's etc - virtually everything inside, including a surprisingly high percentage of books published in Australia, which isn't very usual in UK bookshops."
Galloway and Porter spreads on three floors - the basement is home to their collection of fiction, but it also houses books on travel and gardening, the ground floor is the place to search for books on art, cooking, or children’s books and the first floor focuses on non-fiction titles covering the humanity field but also medicine, technology and lots of other subjects. Low prices, a great stock which gets renewed very often and a staff service which gets praise from practically all the customers - add it all together and the final result comes pretty close to our idea of an ideal bookstore.
