Bookshops

Our intrepid reps journey the length and breadth of Britain to show you some of our favourite bookshops. We’ve travelled 620 miles from our most northerly Bookshop of the Month – Topping in St Andrews – to our most southerly – Barton Books in Penzance – and 250 miles from our most westerly – Penrallt Gallery in Machynlleth – to our most easterly – Aldeburgh Bookshop. We have visited independent bookshops, sculpture parks, crypts and many a gallery, interviewing the finest booksellers our humble isle has to offer. Here are some of our best bits…
