Directions

'Excellent bookshop on 3 floors of a venerable building within a bow shot of the Cathedral. "Love for books is palpable. Nice indie café" - Rough Guide, 2014. We all love our jobs, and our customers!

Novelist and ex-employee David Mitchell calls the shop, which AS Byatt opened in 1990, 'the Piccadilly of my psychogeography.'

The fifteenth best UK bookshop” - The Independent

"Canterbury is England's Versailles and Waterstones is the Petit Trianon". - Antonia Fraser

"A kick-ass Waterstones" - Neil Gaiman

Our indie café prepares  locally sourced food on-site. Roman remains and rocking horses all contribute to make this shop 'extraordinary'(according to The Guardian). We specialise in outré but page-turning Fiction, classic Crime, gripping History, exhilarating Art books, riveting Reference, mind-bending Sci-Fi and healing spiritual works.
