Our Philosophy

The Golden Hare is a celebration of the book as a physical object, from the slimmest paperback to the heftiest coffee-table hardback. Whether you’re in search of that next great novel, eye-opening non-fiction or a story to read your child, you can trust the curation of the bookshop and the knowledge of our booksellers to find exactly what you’re looking for.


Our books are carefully handpicked to create a balanced edit consisting of the most exciting new literature and inspiring backlist titles, making Golden Hare Books the perfect place to find that perfect gift or discover something new for yourself. We also reach out to our community with regular events featuring authors, offers and workshops for children and adults. Above all, we want to share our love of amazing books!
