Fantastic bookshop! It's huge - there are lots of books and board games. You can also find puzzles, posters, and different gifts. There are a few levels with different themes - novels, science fiction, children's books, etc. There is also an area where you can sit and read. The staff is polite and helpful.

Situated in the charming city centre of Cambridge, this very well stocked and nicely laid out store of character is a pleasant place to select from a fantastic range of books and the more obscure titles not found in a national chain. I spent a long time there just breathing in the atmosphere of a 'real' book trader. The staff were very helpful.

Exceptional bookshop just opposite to Trinity College. Fantastic collection of books and you also get board games, interesting writing accessories, great notebooks... You can spend hours going through their collection. They also have great poster collection and limited edition art works. Second hand book collection is also nice.
