4. Have a mooch in News From Nowhere
News From Nowhere is a feminist radical bookshop ran by a women’s collective. Offering educational literature, left-wing newspapers and much more, the bookstore also offers free book swaps. It is the perfect place for a mooch, with so many different topics to browse, and a selection of quirky pins, badges, stickers and bookmarks to look at. It’s located on Bold Street, meaning it’s easy to grab a book and then sit in one of the street’s independent coffee shops. Photo: News From Nowhere via Instagram
