A New Look for Dulwich Books

We’re pleased to announce that our shop will shortly be undergoing a major refurbishment, to create a new and improved booklover’s paradise in West Dulwich.

Recently, we were lucky enough to win a James Patterson grant to invest in our children’s section. We plan to use this to make our children’s area more welcoming for local families, showcase brilliant children’s books and host author readings, kids’ activities and, of course, story time. We will also be sprucing up the rest of the shop to create an even more beautiful environment in which our customers can browse and discover great books, chat with our booksellers and meet authors at our events.

In order to accomplish all of this, we will be closing our doors from 4pm on Saturday August 13th, and reopening them at 11am on Monday August 22nd. We look forward to welcoming you back and hearing your thoughts on our new look.

If you would like to order a book from us during our refurbishment, you can do so by emailing us at or by calling our manager Charlotte on 07793 555865. You can either collect your books from the shop when we reopen on August 22nd or, if you need them urgently and are within walking distance of the shop, we will endeavour to personally deliver them to your door!
