Stuck for ideas? Then feel free to ask for recommendations and advice, or sign-up for to our mailing list to be kept up to date with our regular author events and news.

insideshop1It’s no secret that independent bookshops are struggling these days to compete with online giants. However Hungerford Bookshop offers its own fast ordering service (most books will arrive THE NEXT DAY!), a generous loyalty card scheme, expert advice, author signings and talks – and even the occasional completely free book. If you want a literary gift for the bookworm in your life, we can wrap and post a book for you or offer our ‘Book for All Seasons’ package of a regular delivery of bespokely recommended books throughout the year.

If you’re looking for second-hand or antiquarian books try our basement downstairs. We have over 4000 titles down there, with particularly good sections on History and Transport. If you can’t find what you want, then we recommend Bertram Rota which specialises in modern first editions, books on architecture and the applied arts, and private press printing and Livres d’artiste. Visit their website

We also stock Book Tokens, our own gift vouchers, cards, gift wrap, DVDs, Penguin merchandise, notebooks and calendars.

We can source out-of-print books, and can provide maps for planning permission. We are also the place to purchase tickets for The Hungerford Film Club.

We hope you will visit us soon!
