Local History


Chaucer Bookshop

Canterbury is close to London (about 1 1/2 hours by train) and only 30 minutes drive from the Channel Tunnel.

The Chaucer Bookshop is situated in a beautiful 18th Century building inside Canterbury's city walls. The building was originally one house but was established as a bookshop in 1956. The adjoining property was also later acquired and the bookshop greatly extended.

Amongst the wide range of books (on 2 floors) you will find art, architecture, history, English literature, topography, travel, food and wine, railways and many more. We have a variety of original prints and maps for sale and a selection of modern First Editions and fine bindings.

We also stock a comprehensive range of Fine Art greetings cards and wrapping paper.

Our opening hours are: Monday - Saturday 10am-5pm, Sundays and most Bank Holidays 11am - 4pm.
