The Smythson Diary Guide

Diary Guide | Smythson


Whether you find yourself in a Parisian cafe with precious table space amongst the cups of espresso, or perhaps struck with a noteworthy idea in the backseat of a black cab, our pocket diaries are created for a life in perpetual motion.

Since 1908, when Frank Smythson created the first iteration of our best-selling Panama diary, our selection of pocket diaries has grown to include an array of styles and shapes; each with their own clever details. From the exceptionally slim Memoranda to the palm-sized Wafer, each is discreet enough to be slipped inside your pocket or bag without a second thought.

When you find yourself flitting between your home study and the office, and then perhaps popping to a favourite restaurant for a lunch meeting, allow our mid-size diaries to step in as your versatile accompaniment.

These styles offer plenty of room for your ponderings, while still being nimble enough to keep by your side wherever you go. Look to our classic Soho diary if you prefer a week-to-view layout, while our Royal Court and Cosmic Travel diaries have a day-per-page layout - ideal if you like to write more detailed day-to-day notes.

If you’re the type who prefers doing all of your note-taking and list-making from the comfort of your workspace - or perhaps brevity has simply never been your strong suit - our expansive desk diaries could be just the ticket.

With their luxurious proportions and wealth of lined notes pages, you’ll never run out of room again. The pages of our Portobello and Kings diaries provide a handy week-to-view overview of your week ahead, while our slighter larger W1 diary layout includes both a day-per-page layout with a weekly preview.
