The Black Books shop
The location of the bookshop used for comedy series Black Books.
Location: 13 Leigh Street, Bloomsbury, WC1H 9EW
Description: This is the location of the shop used for the outdoor shots of Bill Bailey's bookshop sitcom Black Books. The series was written by Dylan Moran and Graham Linehan.
The shop was used for all the exterior shots on the show and although the interior of the shop was much larger in the sitcom, the layout was loosely based on the interior of Collinge & Clark.
