UPDATE ON OUR TRADING:
Due to the CoronaVirus our main daily suppliers have temporarily ceased delivering to us. This means we cannot order books for you very easily or quickly. We have thousands of books in stock, and are still receiving new releases. We urge you to support our independent bookshop at this incredibly difficult time by buying through our on-line bookshop. You can also buy vouchers from us to use at a later time. We are often in the bookshop working behind closed doors so please do give us a call on 01488 683480 or leave a message to see if we have what you need in stock, or if you would like us to recommend something. Thank you for your understanding.
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
