Welcome to The Woodstock Bookshop

The shop opened in May 2008 and is on the main road in Woodstock, just next to the bus stop. We can supply most books to order by the next day and have several thousand books in stock: to order books ring or email the shop. We have a large selection of children's books and are happy to advise and recommend. We can also supply second-hand and out-of-print titles. We offer discounts for school orders and for book clubs and have a free local delivery service.

We were on the regional shortlist for Independent Bookshop of the Year in 2009, 2013 and 2017, and listed in the Independent's Top 50 UK Bookshops.

Two monthly book groups take place at the bookshop - a poetry group, initially formed to read collections submitted for the annual T S Eliot Prize and now following a slightly wider brief; and a book group focusing more on fiction. Both are open to everyone but occasionally space is limited - please contact us for details.

We hold a series of informal talks and readings throughout the year. If you buy any book at the talk the cost of the ticket will be deducted. Please ring or email to book a place - early booking advisable.

The bookshop started and runs Woodstock Poetry Festival, a completely independent festival that has now been running for 8 years.

The Woodstock Literature Society also holds an excellent series of monthly talks - do visit their website for further details.

Dogs at The Woodstock Bookshop?

Possibly the wildest event we have organised yet... On Sunday June 21st at 4.30pm we will be welcoming Helen Peacocke and her dog Pythius-Peacocke, joint authors of Paws Under the Table, to talk about their book. Helen is a food writer who has reviewed most pubs in Oxfordshire and she and Pythius-Peacocke have produced a charming guide to some of the best pubs in the county including The Woodstock Arms, which does excellent food. You will find out more about the book here. Come to the launch at the shop - well behaved dogs very welcome - Helen will tell us a little about her researches and sign copies, then off for a short walk before retiring to The Woodstock Arms where free nibbles will be served when you order a drink.
