Local Bookshops


The Quadrant Arcade, 14-16 St Peter's Rd, Bournemouth BH1 2AH, UK – 01202 299449

More than a bookshop. Upstairs is a coffee shop which is where I was going as I was waiting for my husband. It is a very relaxed place with lots of seating and books to read or look at newspapers whilst sipping a nice hot drink. Staff are helpful and friendly too.

A lovely bookshop and with the added bonus of having a lovely coffee shop upstairs, the food and coffee is excellent and the service offered by the staff is extremely good as well with a great atmosphere and comfortable seating this really is a pleasant place to sit and have a drink.
