Next, we want to let you all know that we are are still trading safely and in line with government advice through our curated online shop. Obviously we have had to close the doors to our beloved physical store following the government’s announcement on 23rd March – but we are happily still able to operate based on customers ordering books, journals, gifts, vouchers and more online, with our team quickly posting your exciting purchases to you. Use the code NEW NORMAL at check out for free delivery on online orders.

Customers are also more than welcome to call or email the store to discuss recommendations with our skilled booksellers who are still working safely behind closed doors. Our membership programme, kids’ books, gift card and gift wrapping services are still available and we think would be great pick me ups in such hard times. We are running on our usual working hours for the time being.

Follow us on here and our social media to keep up to date with news, offers and bookish inspiration as we navigate our way through this new normal.
