The Bookshop is Now Closed
Due to an unforeseen and significant change in personal circumstance, sadly we have come to the very difficult decision to close our bookshop.
Thank you to everyone who supported us during this challenging period, and for all your kindness and good wishes. It has meant so much to us.
It has been our pleasure to supply books to the local community for the last twenty-one years. We hope you all preserve your hunger for reading and your support for independent business.
Welcome to our Bookshop!
Durdham Down Bookshop has been supplying books to its customers in
Bristol for almost forty years. During this time, it has established
the reputation for having more books per square foot of shelf space than
any other bookshop in the area! The present owner, Kathryn
Atkins, celebrated twenty years at Durdham Down Bookshop in 2014.
Durdham Down Bookshop is the last traditional, family run independent Bristol bookshop.
As well as an excellent range of new books, the shop stocks sheet music, educational toys and classical CDs. The book
ordering service is second to none, with over 90% of ordered books being
available for collection the following day! Individual customers,
schools, libraries and other institutions rely on the
Bookshop's speed and efficiency and the staff's superb product
