About the Dingle Bookshop

A young customer found inspiration in the Dingle Bookshop for Explorer’s Day event at school in England.

We’re a traditional independent bookshop and with knowledgeable staff, our own literary likes and dislikes, and a tendency to share them with our customers.  If we don’t have the title you are looking for we can order it as long as it’s available, or even if it’s out of print. We ship anywhere in the world.
