Aziraphale’s Bookshop, Soho

They sat opposite one another in the back room of Aziraphale's dingy old bookshop in Soho.

Aziraphale’s bookshop in Soho, London, is small, dusty and unwelcoming, dissuading customers from purchasing his precious books.

Soho is a popular and slightly disreputable area of bars and restaurants, bookshops and sexshops, the proverbial melting pot of culture and class. The diversity and accessibility of the neighbourhood make this a prime spot for Aziraphale, as it seems to offer a little bit of everything. Soho is home to one of London’s larger gay communities, and Aziraphale is said to be “gayer than a tree full of monkeys on nitrous oxide.”
