Welcome to The Hungerford Bookshop

The award-winning Hungerford Bookshop can be found in our beautiful listed building at the heart of our historic town. 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.

Within our characterful shop you will find a large range of new releases, bestsellers, bookseller favourites, and timeless classics – all hand-picked and presented with care.  We offer a loyalty scheme, a book subscription gift, and can create book hampers on request.

Downstairs a treasure-trove of second hand and antiquarian books await. We also stock a fantastic selection of cards, gift wrap, and other bookish accessories.

If you can’t find the book you want then we can order it in for you. Most books will arrive the very next day. We can post out countrywide direct from our supplier to the recipient – convenient if you would like to send a book to a friend.

We have an active events programme – sign-up to our mailing-list to be kept in the loop.

We pride ourselves on giving a personal service stemmed from a love of reading and the desire to help you find the perfect book. Visit us soon!
