Our Shop

We are one of those increasing rarities – an independent bookshop.
This means we can make our own selection of the books we stock.  We aim to provide you with something a little different and a wider choice.  Books you may not find elsewhere.

alison’s is so much bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside. Two floors and seven rooms big!  A place of safe browsing, happy discoveries, comfy seating, nooks and crannies.  A real tardis.
