The Petersfield Bookshop has been trading in the town for over 100 years and for over 60 has been in the ownership of the Westwood family.
We are one of the last large, rambling, provincial secondhand and antiquarian bookshops left and we sometimes welcome browsers who have travelled long distances for exactly that experience. The shop is a maze of rooms and aisles, decorated all over with the most peculiar collection of bits and pieces. There is a significant toy and doll display in the shop as well, a part of the collection of Ann Westwood, the senior partner in the shop.
Although there is a studied, old-fashioned vibe to the inside of the shop, we are very much ‘out there’ in the digital world too. If you are too far away to visit us in person, please do follow us on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and join our mailing list to keep in touch with our events and news.
