Your Award-Winning Independent Bookshop

The Hungerford Bookshop can be found in our beautiful listed building at the heart of our historic town. Hungerford is the centre of the North Wessex Downs, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. Our award-winning Bookshop was announced as the South West Regional Winner in the 2015 Independent Bookseller of the Year Industry Awards and it’s not hard to understand why……

Owned and run by Emma and Alex, the bookshop team are passionate about books and the importance of independent shops. You won’t experience algorithms here. What we do offer is knowledge, personal recommendations, the chance to hear from the authors themselves and the joyful serendipity of discovering a title you never expected.

Hungerford Bookshop gives Hungerford its heart and soul.Robert Harris, Author
