Mr B's Emporium Of Reading Delights, Bath

4.8
#6 of 37 in Shopping in Bath
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.

  • Lovely bookshop amazing staff. Helpful and knowledgeable. Wheelchair ramp available but so full of amazing stuff hard to get round. So I chatted to a member of staff who looked things up and fetched and carried while my carer looked round. If you want or need one to one help suggest avoiding weekends and busier times.
  • A reader's bookshop. Lots of small publishers titles and original print runs. Best of all the most knowledgeable staff. Let them know your recent favourite reads and you will get a recommendation for the perfect next read. I don't think they have ever failed me. A must visit while in Bath.
  • I always find some great things here. Lots of children's books, more selection than other shops of Bath. Once they didn't have a book I wanted but were able to get it in less than 24 hours. There are also lots of other interesting items, like board games and adult books. Nice atmosphere and definitely always worth a visit.
  • Quite simply the best bookshop I've ever been to. Amazing selection, friendly knowledgeable staff who are happy to give recommendations. When you visit Bath you must visit here too :)
  • This is quite simply my favourite bio shop in Bath (and beyond!) The friendly service is so helpful and kind. A really peaceful place to find a great new read. They even have toilets for shoppers and water to drink while you browse. Make sure you visit!
