View our book collection

Being an ‘indie’, The Bell Bookshop offers a different and more eclectic range to the chain shops. You’ll find books here that the bigger stores ignore, hidden gems you may have overlooked. Everyone working here is passionate about books, and we’re always happy to share our latest favourites with you (and we read a lot!). We pride ourselves on hand-picking every book on our shelves.

“The Bell Bookshop has an incredible range of books and their staff are expert in guiding you towards one that suits you. If you request a particular book and they don’t have it, they’ll order it in for the next day. The Bell Bookshop is a great asset to Henley-on-Thames.”
