The Blue House Bookshop is an independent shop designed especially for children and young adults. We hope to provide a welcoming space, lovely atmosphere, readings from local authors all in an historical setting. The building dates back to the Tudor times and the back wall even further to the original St Mary’s Abbey. We stock a range of books for ages 0-18 and aim to offer some surprises and fresh choices not available in other stores. You can go away with one of our exclusive tote bags with the Blue House Bookshop logo and design. We are happy to supply schools and welcome group visits.
