Inspirock Rating:
5/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web
Quaint and charming, Mr B's Emporium Of Reading Delights has something for everyone. This little independent bookshop is as educational as is it quirky. Grab a book from an old-fashioned bathtub, and curl up in an easy chair in front of a cozy fireplace. You'll find a variety of books to choose from, all seemingly hand picked for their originality. The store also offers the unique chance to sit down with a librarian one-on-one, munch on tea and cookies, and discuss your reading interests. After the discussion, the librarian will then provide a long list of book suggestions that meet your interests. The shop is known for its high level of service, due in part to its knowledgeable staff.

  • We had read that this is one of the best bookstores in the world, and that is accurate. A wonderful store, staffed by terrific people. We could have spent all day in there.
  • Mr Bs is the perfect place to find a book. I like it because I usually don't know what book I want, but can find one here. Its a little bit of a mystery tour with the upstairs and downstairs
  • The staff give great personalised recommendations
  • After a month long tour of the UK seeking out all bookstores this was by far our favorite. The staff was so knowledgeable and friendly. Not only did they have a book I had been searching for but I was recommended so many amazing other books tailored to my interests. I wish I had a Mr. B's back home.
  • Awesome place. And if you buy a book as a gift, it's well worth £1 to get it wrapped
