My wife to be organised a surprise trip to this gem of a shop, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised, My initial impression was one of jubilation as I began to pick up a higher frequency from the shop keeps beard. A strapping young chap. The vibe in this shop was something special, kind of Notre-Dame meets Little Chef A3, Wisley South Filling Station, Ripley By-Pass, Surrey. The scent of the shop was sweet, like the nectar of Anise hyssop (Agastache foenicullum). If you have the time, please visit. There are worse ways to spend your spare time.

My parents and I had a delightful trip to the Emporium earlier in the month where we had a lovely time chatting to Bernard and talking all things Sir Terry, including the antics the pair of them got up to. The shop is small but absolutely charming and stuffed with all kinds of amazing merch, from beer mats and tea towels, bronze figurines, games, books, stuffed toys (the luggage and rats onna stick!) and clothing/jewellery. There's something for all budgets and interests, and a secret drawer which opens to reveal sketches and letters from Sir Terry himself. Definitely worth the pilgrimmage, and make sure to check out the "twinned with" Wincanton sign by Morrisons and the Discworld-named roads a short drive away.

What an absolute delight this quirky little establishment this is! From the moment you reach the front door, you are enveloped by all things Terry Pratchett. Bernard and Isobel are warm and friendly with inexhaustable stories of the great man himself and they are both more than happy to share them with anyone who walks in. There is no 'hard sell' or pressure to get what you want and get out, Instead you are welcomed inside and treated like old friends. They also shared local knowledge of places to eat and how to get to streets named in honour of Terry and his wonderful world. we can't wait to return and spend more happy hours browsing Ank-Morpork and talking to two amazing people. Thank you both for your time and for taking the trouble to sign those books that you were lucky enough to collaborate on.

My husband arranged a trip to the Emporium for my Christmas present, including an overnight hotel stay nearby and a gift voucher for the shop. Having received many many gifts (and my own purchases) from afar over the years it was a real treat to finally be there in person. A shame I never managed it when Sir Terry was still around, but it was great to chat to Ian and hear his stories about the great man and the history of the Emporium. Ian also gave us a great recommendation for our way home - go and visit Avebury. We did, and had a lovely time there too. Thanks Ian!

I don't really have the words to describe the feeling of finally being able to visit this shop in person. It was everything I hoped for and more. We were able to have a long chat with Bernard and hear his absolutely wonderful stories about the shop, Sir Terry and life in general. Being huge fans, both my OH and I were quite emotional after the stories and cheered ourselves up by spending as much money as we possibly could. This shop is a utopia for a Discworld fan and everyone should visit at least once!
