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!

The shop was everything I expected and more. Was so nice to have other local businesses recommend. The staff were welcoming and thanks for the humbugs!

Crivens!! The Discworld Emporium is everything I hoped for, and so much more. I’ve been a clacks customer for years but today I finally got to visit in person.

Needless to say, if you are a Discworld fan, you won’t be disappointed. The shop is packed with goodies and memorabilia and the two ladies who were on duty (the Agony Aunts perhaps) were beyond hospitable. They certainly made it easy to part with a large wad of my hard earned Anhk Morpork dollars.

Just a wonderful treasure of a shop selling everything Discworld. Lovely exclusive items and jewellery plus all the books. The shop is well presented and the staff obviously love working there. If you can’t make it down to this corner of the country they have a website and mail order.

Brilliant source of all things 'Terry Pratchett.' Lovely atmospheric shop with really helpful staff. Make sure you check for opening times as they are sometimes closed for busy internet business. There is FREE parking throughout the town

Made a huge pilgramage to the Emporium and have to say I was a little dissapointed. Yes they got great Discworld related merchandise but I could get that online, you go for the experience and to meet fellow fans. I was immediately disappointed that they did not require a password to enter...'the significant owl hoots in the night'. Spent some time browsing and when I went to pay the clerk literally asked me if I was a fan of Terry Pratchett....?

If all establishments were run as this emporium is, or if we lived on a 10,000 diameter disc atop 4 elephants (etc), we'd all be happier, although perhaps no wiser. Take a day off work tomorrow, jump in the car right now, and get yourself to this enchanting, unique, safe, (usually), amusing, (always), daft, and faithful-to-Discworld shoppe. A nicer bunch of miscreants, sages, staff, (both meanings of the word), and happy folk you will not meet. Take your cash, buy some stuff - and ask for a Thieves' Guild receipt! We enjoyed our first Hogswatch there yesterday so much! And the good folk of Wincanton are stars too!

I found out about this wonderous emporium whilst trawling the web for Discworld goodies. 2 hours later I was inside and chatting happily about Rat Pies and CMOTs latest schemes. I was home!

And I left with a silly grin like the Librarian's and a very damaged bank account.

Go there now, handover your card and beg for mercy!

Having discovered Wincanton's unique twinning with the fictional city of Ankh-MorpoAnkh-Morpork, and the local attachment the town has to author Sir Terry Pratchett, I took my partner (who is a huge fan of his) to Wincanton to visit this quaint little shop. It houses all things Discworld related, from all the novels, to games, memorabilia, and delightful odds and ends associated with the Disc World universe. The shop has much character, and the staff (one lady in particular called, Reb) was incredibly helpful - not just in taking the time to respond to my many inquisitive emails - but in their friendly manner, and enthusiasm in the world of the novels, and Sir Terry Pratchett.

My partner and I came away with huge smiles. Quaint, friendly and recommended if passing through.

It may be handy to mention for visitors to Wincanton, the town has a 'twinned with Ankh-Morpork' sign to view, as well as a few Disc World related street signs within a new development being built!

The Emporium is run by Bernard and Isobel who started working with Sir Terry back in 1990. A wonderful couple with many a story to tell, they are ably assisted by Reb and Ian. It has a lovely atmosphere and the team are always happy to chat about Terry, they all have their own stories and memories. Bernard has written his own novel which I highly recommend buying while you're there. A word of warning though, make sure you take lots of money as there is a wonderful selection of merchandise which is being added to all the time. If you're anywhere near the area you really must visit.
