  • Wow what an amazing place I could have stayed here for days. Helpful and friendly staff, lovely coffee, chairs and stools dotted about to sit and read. Bliss
  • Amazing book shop, look out for the events to join some brilliant book signings. Service is unrivalled, coffee is offered as you browse and good for all ages.
  • This is by far the most amazing book shop I've ever visited. The staff were absolutely lovely and I could of spent all day in there
  • Beautiful bookshop with a really cosy and welcoming vibe. This was my first visit to this branch of Toppings and I comfortably spent 2 hours here and bought a lot of books! The free tea and coffee is a definite incentive - highly recommend visiting
  • Topping & Company is a fantastic independent book store right in the heart of Bath with a huge selection of books across a wide variety of subjects. One nice touch is that all the books are sold with protective plastic book covers. The staff are hugely knowledgeable and always happy to help you. The store runs regular high quality events l, both in store and in nearby venues, with a great range of authors. One of the benefits of this means that the store had a large number of signed books in stock which makes Topping & Company a fantastic place to find a present for the book lover in your life. There aren't many book shops of this calibre left so I would strongly recommend visiting and supporting then with your custom. If you love books and live in or are visiting Bath then this is the place for you.
