"Iconic" travel bookshop put up for sale
31.05.11 | Lisa Campbell
An "iconic" London travel bookshop is being put up for sale after 32 years on the high street.
The Travel Bookshop, based in London’s Notting Hill area, has been run by its present owner, based in France, for the last 25 years.
A spokeswoman for the shop said: "His adult children have indicated that they would rather not follow him into the business and so he feels that the continuance of the trade would be best served by selling it on for a new generation to look after one of London's iconic and special bookshops."
The Travel Bookshop was made famous by the Hugh Grant film "Notting Hill".
