Ode to Charing Cross Road

Well, it's not actually an ode, but that sounds better than, "Here's a post about my favourite street in London - Charing Cross Road!" Though perhaps one day I will write an Ode to CCR (feel free to have a try yourself and add to the comments).
For any book lover out there CCR is like heaven on earth - and with plentiful atmos and scope for people-watching thrown in! There are also loads of great little places for a nice cup of tea (which had to be said of course) or indeed a slightly stronger beverage if you're feeling that way inclined. Divert yourself for a moment for a glimpse into Charing Cross Road.

I was well chuffed with my recent discovery in Shipley's: "A History of Illuminated Manuscripts" (well you have to be that way inclined to appreciate it!).
Though if you're more of a musical type have a wander into Macari's - very helpful and friendly little music place.
Nearest tube: Tottenham Court Road or Leicester Square
