It's must be one heck of a shop but now it's closed. We wanted to visit based on rave reviews from others but we were bit too late to experience ourselves....

This is a lovely bookshop, with a really nice selection over the two floors. I particularly like the fiction and the children's section, as well as the bargains downstairs. Nicely presented and I always enjoy shopping here.

This bookshop is wonderful and in addition sells little handmade toys as well. The selection is great with childrens books which you don't usually see in the bigger stores.

A nice combination of bookshop and toy shop, with a wide selection of each. We found some nice educational toys, as well as an interesting collection of humorous greeting cards.

A lovely little bookshop that makes shopping for presents for children and families easy. All the choices of childrens books seem to be good, there's a wide range, and they're at an excellent price.
