Situated in The Hayes, we sit in a perfect location for a day out in Wales' beautiful capital city.

Nestled centrally within Cardiff's shopping district, surrounded by unique shopping arcades and fantastic restaurants, and not a stone’s throw away from Cardiff Castle, our bookshop cannot fail to inspire.

Our friendly and experienced staff are passionate about books, and champion local authors and events. Our Café serves locally sourced cakes and pastries and our book-loving baristas provide readers a haven in the city centre - escape from the bustle of outside and relax with a good book.

Whether you're looking for a picture book to inspire a child, or a Sci-Fi classic, our staff are always on hand to help with any of your enquiries.

**POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE** We now hold a weekly story time every Saturday at 11am in the children's department!
