    What a treat this place is. Quirky, original and smells like books. Plenty to explore and could easily lose yourself in there for a few hours, if not days.  more »

  • Superb bookshop that encourages lengthy browsing and never fails to surprise. Top selection of new and used books, housed in an atmospheric, spacious building that still retains an air of mystery and discovery. I could spend hours here!
  • Oh my what's not to love! Full of atmosphere and books of all genre's. We lost our teenagers in there, but we didn't mind, it just meant we could spend longer in there ourselves.
  • Great selection of books old and new. Lovely cafe with good food too.
  • Beautiful shop with attentive staff, went on a very busy day due to Hay Festival and even though it was manic, it was enjoyable
  • Having googled the shop for some nostalgic, literature fuelled memories I was disappointed that the screening of the new Starwars film was the first thing to appear in my search. I'm sure I'm not the only one who think's its a shame to see the romantically dusty shelves of the bookshop thrown into the shadows of a multi-million pound hollywood film.
