UPDATE ON OUR TRADING:
We are back to our normal opening hours: 9:30am – 5pm Monday – Saturday, and Sundays 11am – 3pm. To ensure safe browsing hand sanitiser is available at the door. Please use it. We have a maximum of 3 people/bubbles in at once. Our downstairs second-hand department is now open. Please ask to be let down there as currently it is restricted to one person at a time. In accordance with government guidelines a facemask must be worn in the shop (we have spares on the trolley by the door if you forget yours). Contactless payments please where possible. All these measures helps us protect our booksellers as well as you.
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 bookshop won a Nibbie for Independent Bookshop of the Year in 2009. In 2019 we sccoped Best in Business as well as Best Independent Retailer at the Newbury Weekly News’ business awards. In 2020 we have been regionally shortlisted for Independent Bookshop of the year. 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. We work closely with other organisations and schools and believe in playing an active role within the community.
Hungerford Bookshop gives Hungerford its heart and soul.Robert Harris, Author
