Success! You're on the list.

Busted here for the first time yesterday! A gem of a shop which attracted me straight away by the window display– said, “Come in and browse” ! Went back later to a book talk by an author . Was really special as the girls who run the bookshop are so welcoming and passionate about books. I will certainly be in again, when I visit Whitby!


Beautiful shop flying the flag for independent bookselling. Great range and super children’s section, wished we lived closer as we were visiting the north of England on holiday.
