Originally established in 1975 as a clothing store, our Sue Ryder Spalding Bookshop has been open since 2005 and offers the truly unique experience as being Sue Ryder’s only dedicated book and music shop.
Located in ‘The Crescent’, we are easy to find, being just a ten-minute walk away from both the train and bus stations, and opposite an award-winning independent book store – making this part of town a haven for book lovers.
