The Oldfield Park Bookshop

I can't recommend this book shop enough. Every visit is an absolute joy. The owner and staff are exceptionally knowledgeable and approachable. Anyone with even an inckling of an interest in books should absolutely visit this shop because you will come away feeling inspired.

Brilliant service. Staff are friendly and very knowledgeable.


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

A fantastic book shop spread over three floors - it feels like every book ever published is here. A wonderful place to browse - even if you know what you are looking for - I usually end of coming out with at least one more book than I intended to buy. The staff know their stuff and can help you find books if you are having trouble. They have their own coffee shop which is a nice are to relax before, after or during your book shopping. My only niggle is they are generally more expensive than buying online - but that's partially counterbalanced by the ability to browse at leisure.

My favourite branch of W/Stones! Great location in our great City. Well stocked, interesting events and friendly staff.

Decent selection of second hand books. You rarely find a book misfiled, and there are regularly new books to examine.

Books one would not find in a usual bookshop, old, unwanted, and invaluable.
