Local Bookshops


4-5 Milsom St, Bath BA1 1DA, UK – 01225 448515

One of the best shops in Bath. A fine range of books, well presented, over several floors. Plus a very good coffee shop in which to have a break from browsing the shelves. People behind the counters very nice, helpful and knowledgeable.

Waterstones continues to offer hard copy books in the face of a digital onslaught. There is something nice about holding a book and then just turning it over to read the fly leaf. Recommended

43 Moorland Rd, Bath BA2 3PN, UK – 01225 427722

Topping & Company Booksellers of Bath

The Paragon, Bath BA1 5LS, UK – 01225 428111

Amazing place for anybody who loves books. You can get lost in here for ever. Staff super helpful as well.

Topping & Company is a fantastic independent book store right in the heart of Bath with a huge selection of books across a wide variety of subjects. One nice touch is that all the books are sold with protective plastic book covers. The staff are hugely knowledgeable and always happy to help you. The store runs regular high quality events l, both in store and in nearby venues, with a great range of authors. One of the benefits of this means that the store had a large number of signed books in stock which makes Topping & Company a fantastic place to find a present for the book lover in your life. There aren't many book shops of this calibre left so I would strongly recommend visiting and supporting then with your custom. If you love books and live in or are visiting Bath then this is the place for you.
