Welcome to The Grove Bookshop, Ilkley

We are one of the North of England’s best-known independent bookshops and have been selling books in the pretty spa town of Ilkley for over 40 years.

We are also proud to be the official bookseller for the annual Ilkley Literature Festival in October.

As an independent bookshop we stock titles in a wide range of subjects including fiction, politics, current affairs and the environment, as well as Yorkshire and local interest books. We also have a World Travel Department which has a great range of maps, guides, coffee-table books and globes.

We have a dedicated music department. Grove Music sells an extensive range of CDs (mainly classical, jazz and folk), as well as sheet music and accessories.
