The location of Marks and Co featured in the book of the address

Location: 84 Charing Cross Road, London

Description: A long-standing correspondence between New York based author Helene Hanff and the staff of a real-life bookstore located here (Marks & Co.), was the inspiration for her book 84 Charing Cross Road.

In 1986 the novel was made into a film with Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins. The book has also been produced as a play and a BBC radio drama.

84 Charing Cross Road has not been a bookstore for many years, but there is a brass plaque marking the site where Marks & Co. used to be.
