First opening its doors in 2003 at a small shopfront in Covent Garden, Treadwell's has flourished under the direction of it's founder and guiding spirit, Dr Christina Oakley-Harrington. It has grown in reputation and size, so much so that it relocated to Bloomsbury in 2011, just around the corner from the British Museum.

Treadwells has always been a collective of friends and colleagues of common purpose. From the first day, friends have donated expertise, resources, old furniture and valuable advice.

In less that two decades Treadwell's has become the beating heart of modern esoteric study. It offers a carefully curated selection of both old and new books; all are chosen with the experienced occultist, the curious academic, and the young student in mind.

The Treadwell's lecture series is internationally recognised as having some of the finest modern speakers and true experts in the their field. Lecture evenings at Treadwell's are a highlight for many of our guests, who always enjoy the friendly conversations at the social which follows. Thanks to many people, we have become the centre around which the London occult community orbits.

We hope you will be able to join in one of these conversations soon.

Christina, Carl, Will, Esther, Coco, Max and all the Treadwell's team.
