About College Street

College Street is a dream haven for the bibliophiles. Located in Central Kolkata, College Street is an enormous place dotted with the multitude of bookstores and publishing houses. It has been given an endearing nickname of ‘Boi Para’, meaning a book street. College street is well-known for its palpable atmosphere, a collection of various kinds of books at discounted price and of course for the time-honored, nostalgic Indian Coffee House. The street has been a rendezvous point for the city intellectuals ever since its inception. The major attraction of College Street is that; you can find the first editions or the collection of rare books at throwaway prices. If you are a bookaholic, then College Street is the best place for you to visit and grab your favorite collection.

Pro Tip: Visit this market in the weekdays only as in the weekends it remains closed.
