Such a lovely shop and a real asset to the town. Good stock of books of assorted genres plus helpful ordering service if you want something particular.

Fantastic bookshop. Great range of quality books as well as brilliant children's toys. They also have a lovely tea room where you can relax with a drink and a bite to eat. Friendly and helpful staff as well. A wonderful local business that has something for everyone.

Lovely spacious book & gift shop with lots of unusual things in both departments. Lovely friendly helpful staff, & wheelchair friendly cafe. Easy to spend hours there!

In my experience, this place is unique. Much more than a bookshop, there are unusual cards, gifts, and a restaurant serving various, quality, home-made hot food and goodies in a quaint atmosphere.

It may be an overused phrase, but this really is a hidden gem. The unassuming entrance hides the huge interior, in fact I'd walked by without entering for a couple of years before realising what an expansive and cool place this is.

Best bookshop so welcoming, good range of authors, comfortable and a brilliant cafe fantastic food.

I highly recommend.

I discovered Bookmark 20 years ago and the customer service is as good today as it was the first-time I stepped through the door.

Everyone loves to visit a bookshop in person (especially an indie shop), but we understand it isn't always possible.
That's where Bookshop.org comes in!
Bookshop.org was set up to support independent bookshops and give everyone a more ethical alternative to... other sites on the Internet.
It's simple to use; follow the link: uk.bookshop.org, choose a bookshop to support (hopefully us), and we receive a % of the sale price.
Alternatively, if you don't choose a specific shop, the profits will be placed in a vast fund shared equally between all participating bookshops at the end of every month.

Happy Shopping!
