Who We Are

Golden Hare Books is an independent bookshop, established in 2012, which emphasises beautiful, unusual and interesting books – inside and out. Read more about our philosophy below…

What We Do

We want shopping at the Golden Hare to be a wonderful experience from start to finish, whether you visit us in store or online. We run regular events, offers and even serve fresh filter coffee free of charge!

Where To Find Us

The Golden Hare is in the heart of vibrant Stockbridge, in the New Town area of beautiful Edinburgh. We open 7 days a week from 10am-6pm. You can read more about where to find us here.

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!
