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 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.

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 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!

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.

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!

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!
