Browse by appointment at Hungerford Bookshop

Do you fancy having Hungerford Bookshop all to yourself (or your bubble)? Now you can! From October through to December we will be offering half hour private browsing sessions so you can shop in peace without bumping into others.

This is an ideal way to start your Christmas shopping (we all know books make perfect presents) and it is also a chance to treat yourself. We’ll have wish-lists on hand to leave behind the counter so you can send someone in to buy the titles that are calling to you.

Better still, should you need advice, a friendly bookseller will be on hand to share recommendations. You are very welcome to a glass of wine, too. All sounds very civilised, doesn’t it?

The private browsing sessions take place as follows:

  • Every Wednesday from 7 October to 23 December we have two bookable slots between 5.00pm and 6.00pm.
  • Every Friday from 2 October to 18 December we have five bookable slots between 5.00pm and  7:30pm.

If half an hour is not enough you can book two consecutive sessions.

£5 per half hour (redeemable against any purchases).

For available slots book through Eventbrite or give us a call at the bookshop on 01488 683480.
