Bookshop Description: (Est. 1978)

Welcome to the Grove Bookshop, one of the north of England's best-known independent bookshops. Situated in Ilkley, the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, the Grove Bookshop is located along the tree-lined Grove, which offers a pleasant and relaxing shopping experience. The ground floor of the shop is a general bookshop which caters for all tastes. We also carry a wide range of Yorkshire books, from life in Bradford's textile mills to the stunning photographic landscapes of the Dales. Our extensive travel section offers a variety of local walking guides and maps, and we also stock travel guides for destinations across the globe The Grove Bookshop also carries a large stock of books signed by the author, particularly from October onwards, reflecting our role as the official bookseller for the Ilkley Literature Festival. Alan Bennett, a long-standing customer, occasionally pops in to sign copies of his popular books, which always make great presents for friends and family. Our fast and efficient ordering system means the vast majority of customer orders arrive the following day. To order any British book in print, just email details of the title(s) you are interested in or give us a call (contact details below). Another feature of the Grove Bookshop is the lower-floor where you will find Grove Music, selling an extensive range of CDs (mainly classical, jazz and classic rock), DVDs (with an emphasis on classic and modern classic films from Britain and abroad) and sheet music. The Grove Bookshop is just 200 yards from Ilkley's bus and train station, and there is a large car park to the rear. We are open 9-5.30 Monday to Saturday (Books and Music), and 11.30-4.30 on Sundays.
