Our shop

St Ives Bookseller is one of the leading independent bookshops in the UK.

A stone’s throw from the bustling harbour, we are located at the beginning of the main cobbled shopping street of St Ives in Cornwall.

Beautifully fitted with oak bookcases and Cornish slate floors, we are small, but we aim to stock something for everyone with a large general range of titles. The children’s section is particularly tempting, as are the central tables packed full of titles to browse through, from prize winners to holiday reads, from well-known local authors to independent gems. We love books with a Cornish theme as well as signed editions.

We are staffed by friendly and knowledgeable booksellers who are on hand to help you find your perfect read!
