  • This store has an excellent view of books! If you don't understand what this means, come visit and see for yourself.
  • a great book store, with a very good arrangement which makes it supper easy to find what you're looking for.
  • Huge store, amazing range of books. There is a music shop and a poster & art shop run by Blackwell's on the same street. I haven't been to the coffee shop but according to other reviews it I great.
  • Nice bookshop. Except that the Religion section cries out for more books. It's all been muffled by other book genres. Too much worldly but less of religion.
  • I always feel calmer as soon as I walk in here. When I leave, I always wonder why I suddenly have no money.
