Welcome To Wivenhoe Book Shop
Located just on the outskirts of Colchester in the small town of Wivenhoe, our book shop has a lot more to offer you than great reads. We are passionate about the literary world here and for the last 41 years the Wivenhoe Book Shop has been set in a picturesque clapboard building that is from the 17th century. Our book store has even been named ‘the cultural hub of the community’ by some, probably because of our full programme of events for writers, readers, knitters, philosophers, and artists. We have many courses and classes that you can take here depending on what you are interested in of course. We also organise author readings, book launches, philosophy breakfasts, occasionally we will have a live poetry event, literary lunches/suppers and we even run what is probably the world’s smallest art gallery.
If we don’t have your book in stock then don’t worry as we can access over 250,000 titles by overnight order so we have got you covered. But in our vast collection we are sure you will find something that you can get lost in. If you are looking to start writing your own content then why not come along to one of our events or classes, you will definitely learn a thing or two. To learn more check out our website HERE.
