Local Bookshops


1 West Mall, Castle Lane West, Bournemouth BH8 9UY, UK – 01202 548566

I was approached by a really friendly member of staff who was sharing some of the books she would recommend, it was nice and gave me a few ideas. I was also impressed by the layout and choice of books!! I also liked the idea of the books you can buy that are wrapped up with a clue about what's inside. Now all they need is a comfy sofa for me to sit on and read....

This is a lovely book store with a comprehensive selection of books, helpful and pleasant staff. The store is easily accessible and there is a coffee shop at the rear

St Martins Charity Books

113 Belle Vue Rd, Bournemouth BH6 3DJ, UK – 01202 419119

Charming little second-hand charity bookstore. They have all sorts of books and well worth a browse. Very reasonable prices and the staff, whom I believe are volunteers, are helpful too. Try it and be pleasantly surprised by this quirky and quiet shop.


P, Castle Point Centre, Castle Ln W, Bournemouth BH8 9UZ, UK – 01202 525381

Well stocked, out of town styled store. Staff are helpful, they have a good magazine selection and stationery but not so much else. The books are mostly chart based or educational.
