About Emma

Emma established Travelling Through… in 2014. It was a modern fusion of independent bookshop, cafe, culture hub and bar.  The books were categorised by location rather than by genre providing the customer with an alternative way to discover and re-discover books from many latitudes, longitudes and cultural origins.  We served light tasty bites and endeavoured to stock ethical products where ever possible, sourcing our stock from London’s world communities and suppliers with direct links to small socially-aware cooperatives.

Our aim was to provide the customer with a unique way to explore their cultural roots as well as those of others.  Whether a local resident, Londoner, commuter, or overseas visitor (and whether in person or by virtual means alone), we hope Travelling Through was a natural extension of your everyday life, of your reading, your socialising and your cultural interests as well as your coffee or tea drinking habits.

Through books, social events and a tranquil space to drink a glass of wine, Travelling Through… aimed to take you on a journey around the world while simultaneously travelling through London. Now that the bookshop has closed, we will continue to armchair travel but in new ways as Emma fuses the Travelling Through… spirit of adventure with reality.
