Fast Ordering Service

It’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 books throughout the year recommend just for you.

Secondhand Books

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.

Gifts, Out of Print Books, Maps & Event Tickets

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

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