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 Bookseller of the Year in 2009 and 2013, 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.

Patrick Gale - A Place Called Winter



Patrick Gale is coming to the Blenheim Palace Literary Festival on Friday 25 September at 6pm. He will be speaking in St Mary Magdalene Church - tickets are £12, or £10.80 for holders of a Blenheim Palace annual pass and can be bought either through the festival website here or by phone, email or in person from The Woodstock Bookshop.

Patrick Gale has spoken here twice before and is an excellent and very engaging speaker. A Place Called Winter is partly based on the life of his great grandfather and tells the story of a man finding a new life in a new land: 'his most powerfully moving novel yet' - Paul Burston, Independent
