You may know it as Hugh Grant’s workplace in ‘Notting Hill’ or as the purveyor of fine travel literature on Portobello Road but we are sad to hear that after 32 years, The Travel Bookshop is closing down. The only thing to soften the blow is that from today (until stock runs out) it holds a closing down sale with 50% off all books, which is a bargain and a half. Go and support what has been a national institution and – who’d have thought it? – one of London’s key tourist attractions. As journeys go, this place has had a long and colourful one.
