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.

Open for collections and deliveries during the lockdown

Although we can't open for browsing and you are not allowed in the bookshop, we will be here to order books - you can ring the bookshop any time to leave a message, or between 11 and 3 every day to speak to us with queries or orders (01993 812760) - or email us on info@woodstockbookshop.co.uk. We are happy to suggest ideas for presents and also can deliver to you if you are not able to come and collect from the door.

If you live further away but would like to support The Woodstock Bookshop rather than an online one that does not pay taxes and undercuts independent booksellers, you can help us by ordering through Bookshop.org, link below:


Many thanks for your support during this time and best wishes to you all.
