Our Roman Gate branch is built near the site of the old East Gate of the Roman city of Isca Dumnoniorum. Although we haven't been here quite that long, a bookshop has been trading from this site for over 25 years. 

Nowadays we are a modern and vibrant bookshop spread out over three large floors, with a spacious and welcoming Cafe W on our First Floor, offering delicious locally-sourced sandwiches, cakes and pastries.

On the Ground Floor, you will find our fresh and much-loved Children's section. It's a bright and cheerful environment filled with wonderful books to inspire young minds.

Our Second Floor hosts a quiet study area alongside an extensive travel and history section.

Our friendly staff are here to help you. With their years of experience and unquenchable enthusiasm for all things bookish, we are confident that we can find just what you are looking for and perhaps something you weren't!   

From Classics to Crime, from baking to biographies, it's all here and it's all for you.
