Welcome to Village Books

Located in the heart of lovely leafy Dulwich Village, we are a small but beautifully stocked award-winning independent bookshop with a terrific range of books to suit all the family. With over 7000 titles spread over two floors, you’ll find all the latest new books, together with a wide selection of fiction, biography, history, travel, cookery and much more. Our children’s section is particularly important to us, catering for new-born babies through to young adults. As well as books we have a good range of stylish cards, wrapping paper and book-related gifts, and we’re always happy to gift-wrap your purchases. We sell and redeem National Book Tokens. Visit Village Books, and we’ll introduce you to a treasure-trove of books and writers that you’d never experience simply by buying on-line. But just in case you can’t come to the shop phone us or click on the link above to send an email.

What our customers say

My favourite bookshop in the UK. All the staff have a real enthusiasm for books, are always willing to advise and help, never patronise and even welcome my dog. What more could anyone ask?

This is the best bookshop I know. A small shop, packed with stock, it is run by helpful and knowledgeable staff, who obviously enjoy reading, and are willing and able to advise customers. Orders arrive within 24 hours. Book selection for children is particularly good.
