  • 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.
