Looking for a good read for your book club? Want a good book at a reasonable price? Shopping for a vintage copy of Charles Dickens’ or John Le Carre’s works? Stop by The Shakespeare Hospice Bookshop and Café for a browse and you won’t be disappointed. The award-winning Bookshop has an excellent selection of books covering all genres for people of all ages.


There are plenty of books on history, literature, biography, travel, maps, humour, gardening, cookery, transport, business, economics, handicrafts, natural history,  poetry, foreign language, religion,  health and lifestyle just for starters.


The Bookshop has a dedicated Children’s Room where classic and contemporary authors of children’s or teen books can be found in great condition and prices. And head up stairs to its first floor where you’ll find its Music Room full of cds, sheet music and vinyl . We also have an impressive collection of DVDs, comic books and graphic novels  all at good prices. 

Why not complement your browsing with a cup of tea and a piece of cake (carrot cake, lemon drizzle or a fruit cake) . We have a wonderful selection of teas and  coffee on offer  at our cozy café. Our volunteers can easily whip up a  latte, espresso, cappuccino, Americano, mocha or hot chocolate. You can join our Café Loyalty Card programme too! Buy 6 teas or coffees and you’ll get your 7th drink for free as a small way for us to thank you for supporting the Hospice. We also have a Book Club the first Friday of each month that takes place in our Café. 


The Bookshop is also the perfect place to pick up gifts for special occasions. We have £5 Bookshop Gift Vouchers that are perfect for  birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Valentine's Day and Christmas too!


The Bookshop and Café is on Facebook and Twitter so do follow us to keep abreast with our special in-store offers, events such as book signings or art exhibitions and special openings.
