Local Bookshops


118 High St, Newport PO30 1TP, UK – 01983 527927

One of my favourite places on the Island. There is always a wonderful selection of books. Even if you can't find what you're looking for on the shelves, the staff are always friendly and helpful and it's never a problem to get it ordered in. There's a place in the world now for e-readers, of course there is, but I, for one, will never be abandoning the trusty bookshop and all its charms!
