What our customers say

A great little bookshop. The staff are excellent with a wide range of knowledge. Every corner of its floors are crammed full of reading treasures. Often they order in my special requests with no trouble but great speed.

This is the best bookshop I know. A small shop, packed with stock, it is run by helpful and knowledgeable staff, who obviously enjoy reading, and are willing and able to advise customers. Orders arrive within 24 hours. Book selection for children is particularly good.
