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.

are both suspended during the pandemic. We hope to start again as soon as it is safe to do so.

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.

James Harpur

James read here last night from The Dark Age to a packed shop. The shop does fill fairly quickly but it is gratifying that there's an audience for poetry. A friend has already written to say how much she enjoyed it: 'I must say I like his poetry. There is a really rigorous combination of intellectual and spiritual exploration with a wonderful sensitivity to language and form.' He also reads them very well. Thanks to everyone who came and particularly to James for including us on his English visit.
