College Street


"For the Bibliophiles"

If the thought of books makes you smile, this lane is going to lead to some serious excitement! Listed under 'Famous Landmarks of India' by Time magazine in 2007, this street is lined with books, books and more books. Considering that Presidency College, Hindu School and Calcutta University are located here, there is an abundance of research materials, school textbooks and study journals available at regular prices, but students who can't afford it can always choose to photocopy entire books or required pages. However, for those who wish to find great bargains on various fiction and non-fiction titles, there is no better place than here in all of Kolkata; just make sure you put your negotiation skills to the test. Second-hand bookshops sell everything from classics, rare titles as well as recent additions. In fact, if you're unable to find what you want, the shopkeepers would be more than happy to order it for you! This place is always abuzz with youngsters, college groups and tourists alike. The book shops shut down by five, after which you can walk to the famed Indian Coffee House for a steaming cup of coffee as you browse through your bargains.
