Welcome to the Owl Bookshop

BROWSING IS BACK AT THE OWL!

It has been so lovely to welcome our customers back inside the shop after such a long time. Thank you to all of you who used our doorway collection service, we had a wonderful time recommending books by email and over the phone. Our website is still available for reservations in advance of your visit if you prefer and our delivery options will carry on as before. On our website we list our favourite recommendations and new titles and these can be reserved by clicking the reservation links. In addition we have thousands of books in stock so if you don’t find the books you are looking for fill in the 'order a book' form here on the website and we will get back to you with the availability details: if your books are in stock they can be collected straight away; if we are ordering books in we will contact you when your order is ready. We are more than happy to talk through your book requirements on the phone, call us on 020 7485 7793 and we will do the rest for you.
