Welcome to the Golden Hare Online

Welcome to the online home of Golden Hare Books, an independent bookshop in the beautiful village community of Stockbridge in Edinburgh‘s New Town. Nestled on quirky St. Stephen Street, the shop is contemporary, bold and keenly curated. The Golden Hare has a reputation for an interesting and constantly updated selection of books, as well as friendly booksellers who really know and love literature.

As independent booksellers, we know there’s nothing quite like browsing in an actual bookshop, and we encourage everyone to visit us in person. We like to think of this website as a digital extension of our bricks-and-mortar shop in Scotland, reflecting our values and offering our services. Here, you can shop, view and reserve tickets for our upcoming events, ask us questions and hear all about what we’ve been reading. We hope you enjoy.

“So often, a visit to a bookshop has cheered me, and reminded me that there are good things in the world.”

- Vincent Van Gogh
