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 recent Independent's Top 50 UK Bookshops.

BOOKSHOP TALKS
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 Woodstock Literature Society and Wootton Village Hall also hold excellent series of monthly talks - do visit their websites for further details.

Paws for History



Walk and Tea, 12 June 3.45pm - meet at The Woodstock Bookshop
You may remember that last year we held a launch at the shop for Helen Peacocke's book Paws Under the Table, a book of 40 dog-friendly walks throughout Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds (see the entry for June 2009). Well, she's done it again, she's written another dog-friendly guide, Paws for History, this time not only describing 35 walks and pubs but also giving information about aspects of historic interest - ranging from the stained glass windows in Fairford church to the Maharajah's Well at Stoke Row (there is even a picture of The Woodstock Bookshop on p.156 - not historic yet, but who knows!).
Do join us for a walk (dogs welcome) to celebrate - meeting at The Woodstock Bookshop at 3.45, we aim to have a walk round Blenhiem Park and then finish at Harriet's tea room for a well deserved cup of tea while Helen talks about the adventures she had while writing the book. Entry £2.50 to include tea and scone, must be pre-booked at The Woodstock Bookshop.
