Belsize Park Belsize Bookshop  

Is there still a Belsize Bookshop at 193 Haverstock Hill? If so, is it still operated by Don Woodford? He's an old friend from almost 30 years ago. I'll be coming to London from Boston and I'd like to look him up if possible. Many thanks,
Robert Schoen

Belsize Park Belsize Bookshop  

The old Belsize Bookshop closed down five or more years ago. Another bookshop has opened up on the site (Daunt Books), but the old owner is not involved in that store. It's possible that the new owners will be able to help track him down.

Hi Robert

It's not clear when you posted this question - may have been a long time ago! Anyway, sadly the Belsize Bookshop is long gone, now a branch of independent travel booksellers Richard Daunt. I worked at the BB in 1977-78 - my first job straight out of uni, and have many happy memories of the shop, and Don and Bob, and the wonderful (often very eccentric) customers. Sadly I have lost contact with Don so can't help further. I found your question because I Googled to see if I could trace him! Good luck in finding him.

Belsize Park Belsize park  



It is one of the most desirable areas in London. There is very limited number of specially built houses between 1820-1860. Large scale grandiose white stucco house with high ceilings and special character. They don't exist anywhere else in London. They are mainly on Belsize Park Gardens. Belsize Park, Belsize Avenue, Belsize Grove and Buckland crescent.
The roads are tree lined. The Belsize Village ( where Belsize Terrace and Belsize Lane meet at the top of Belsize Park gardens) is one of the most quite and beautiful villages in Hampstead ( there is South End Green Village, Hampstead Village and Oak village, all within 10 minutes walk ).
The village is quite has several shops and keepers are very polite and helpful. You would run to many famous people.
You can have the vibrant parts ( Haverstock hill with Screen on the Hill Cinema, the trendy cafes, wine bars and restaurants) or the culture in Hampstead Theatre ( By Swiss Cottage tube). Many historic pubs ( the Magdala

Belsize Park gym-pub-restaurants  

your nearest Gym is on Belsize Park Gardens ( gow towards Haverstock hill and turn left by the hotel, up Primrose hill and countinue up Belsize Park gardens ( the Washington pubg on your right)
This is also you nearest Pub and comedy club Saturday.
There are many shops on England's lane ( by the pub) and Crispin's supermarket ( not very good and expensive) - your best bet ( that is what I do) is Waitrose on Finchley Road - they have a carpark- or you taka taxi from outside.
There are some shops near you on Winchester Road ( if you are Swiss Cottage end of Fellow's road).
Chamomille Cafe on Englands lane is very nice and frendly.

Belsize Park lets not get carried away  

its a desirable area, not one of the most desirable. hampstead is more desirable and it is just next door. i would describe hampstead as one of the most desirable areas of london. then theres kensington and chelsea, notting hill and holland park. i would definitely put belsize park a notch below any of these.....still a nice area though...

Belsize Park Not fair - North London is best!  

I would just like to respond to this comment to say that while Hampstead is definitely more lovely than Belsize Park with its winding streets and beautiful houses, places like Kensington and Chelsea are sterile in my opinion. Where else could you live where you have the beautiful heath which is a haven in our metropolis along with the vibrancy of Camden and the inspiration of Keats, Shelly and even Ian Fleming on your doorstep?

Belsize Park Belsize Park  

Hmm ....Belsize Park IS one of the most desirable places to live in London, ask any of the estate agents!! - that's why rich celebs. flock there and successful people! Chelsea , Kensington etc are sterile and not really 'fun' places, I lived there so I should know. I think it is more a question of personal taste - Hampstead is better looking in some areas but only just. It is more a family orientated place, and more of a village etc Just thought I would give my thoughts too ;)

Belsize Park The cinema is really cheap...  

There are two cinemas, the little 'Screen on the Hill', which is quite expensive, and another one on Pond Street (round by the hospital) which is much cheaper. Often there are only one or two people in the early showings, so it's a good place to go if you don't want to be overcharged or overcrowded. And they give student discounts too, which makes it even cheaper!

Belsize Park Pubs  

Steeles pub is a great venue with live music at weekends and a superb atmosphere. Its always packed on a sunday night so you have got to get there early to find yourself a 'plot'. TFI Friday was based on Steeles pub and it has that vibrant feel to it. The decor is great to. The live music is phenomenal,it caters for an ecletic mix. Definately worth a visit. Luckily, once closed and your wither hungry or fancy picking up a few bottles to carry on with your party there is an office/Mexican/chinese place next door. When you come out from steeles turn right and walk to the end of the Parade, there is the amazing place (so amazing that I could not remember the name even having been there a couple of times) its a restaurant on top and there si a bar/ club downstairs. Its very dark/cool with huge sofas for an extra chillout session after a mad weekend... The Tavistock arms is just up the road, soemtimes if your lucky they have a lockin. Especially when Chris Moyles and buddies visit.

Belsize Park The Washington in Englands Lane  

The Washington pub has comedy on some nights in the downstairs bit which can be quite good - Harry Hill tests out new material there sometimes. The main bit is rather rugby-ish, but a few local celebs have been spotted in there upon occasion.

Belsize Park Loads of pubs and restaurants  

Really loads! The ASK pizza place has a lovely conservatory bit at the back and flowers out the front - a great place to take your mum in summer. The restaurants on Haverstock Hill all have tables on the pavement, it can be really nice sitting out there under the trees, watching the traffic go by on a warm evening. As long as they're not digging up the road at the time...

Belsize Park Council Tax  

The only drawback about Belsize Park (and Hampstead in general) is it comes under Camden Council which is run by a loony-left dictatorship made of puppets with 'Red' Ken Livingstone pulling their strings.
We live in the area and we pay 1929.50 year (or 193 quid per month over 10 month) Council Tax for poor service.
Obviously if you are sharing a house with two or three the blow is soften. For one bedroom flats, perhaps you pay less than 1600 a year.
The loony left dictatorship running Camden Council got into their heads that Belsize Park & Hampstead residents are rich and famous, so they punish us!

Belsize Park No, it has a Budgens and a Crispins...  

No, it has a Budgens near the tube station which I HATE - always check the sell by date on anything you buy in there before you pay for it! But it's OK if you're caught short of anything. There's a Crispins in England's Lane, which is a bit pricey but is usually open when you need it. For proper shopping I always used to walk down the hill to Chalk Farm Safeway, which is huge, or further down to the big Camden supermarkets, then walk or get the tube/bus back, depending on how much I'd bought and how fit I wanted to get that week!

Belsize Park Beware the emergency steps at Belsize Park tube station!  

Belsize Park is the second deepest tube station on the network, only Hampstead (futher up the hill) is deeper. Never, ever, ever, under any circumstances, try to use the emergency stairs to get up to street level - you'll drop from exhaustion before you get halfway up! The trains aren't too busy and the indicator board usually works, so you know how much of a wait to expect. Frank Skinner lives in Belsize Park and is known to take the tube sometimes - usually in the front carriage of the Southbound trains if you're interested!

Hampstead Group Practice , no 45 Fleet Road, NW3 ( Behind Royal Free Hospital) and about 10 mionutes walk from Tube ( Buses 24, 46 and C11 drops you outside).
