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.

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.

Margaret Macmillan's talk postponed till February 2016

Professor Margaret Macmillan's talk about her forthcoming book, History's People: Personalities and the Past, has been postponed because the book publication has been delayed until February 2016. She will now be giving a talk in Woodstock Methodist Church on Tuesday 23 February 2016 at 7pm.

Margaret MacMillan

Professor Macmillan, Master of St Antony's College Oxford is a leading interpreter of the First World War (The War That Ended Peace) and also author of The Uses and Abuses of History: 'If there are common themes in my research and writing they are, first, international relations as encounters between peoples as much as between governments and leaders and, second, the attempt to find the balance between the great forces in history, whether social, economic or ideological, and the individuals who, at key moments, can play a part in shaping events.'
