Recommended by Nicky SC Gardner
The Aldeburgh Bookshop has been in business for over 50 years. The current owners, John and Mary James, bought the shop in 2000, and moved from London to do so. The previous owners, who were retiring, were very helpful, but they have inevitably introduced their own style. The shop itself is a small independent general bookshop with a popular children's department and a good range of fiction, history and biography. The bookshop is situated in the picturesque seaside town of Aldeburgh. Furthermore, the Alderburgh Bookshop has won the the prestigious 2005 Aurum Independent Bookstore of the Year Award.
The Aldeburgh Bookshop will celebrate its 60th anniversary in 2009. John and Mary James have owned this independent bookshop on the Suffolk Coast for over seven years. They stock a wide range of books, with an extensive selection of books of local interest to the Aldeburgh and East Suffolk.
