"A must for all book lovers"

Come to The Bell Bookshop to be enchanted and inspired.

Looking for something new to read, or seeking a gift? Come to The Bell Bookshop, an independent bookshop which stocks over 20,000 titles. You can find books here that the chain stores ignore, discovering everything from old childhood favourites to your newest obsession.

Located in the attractive market town of Henley-on-Thames, The Bell Bookshop makes an ideal stop on a family day out. We're close to the river and the car park, and history lovers may be interested to know that the shop itself dates back to the 18th century.

So visit us for a wonderful book-browsing experience, and let our friendly and knowledgeable staff find the perfect book for you.
