Welcome to The Grove Bookshop, Ilkley



This year's much-missed Literature Festival is about to finish. There have been lots of fascinating talks and it has been wonderful to provide bookstalls once again. We now have many of the titles available signed by the author, like Gyles Brandreth's Odd Boy Out,  Bernadine Evaristo's Manifesto and Susie Dent's Word Perfect - which makes a special gift.








Christmas is Coming!

We have some great ideas for gifts, newly published fiction, jigsaws, wintry nature writing and calendars for 2022. Shop early and miss the crush! We are having our special discount day again this year. On Sunday 31st October, 11-4, enjoy 20% off purchases (spending at least £20) - on that day only, not special orders or book tokens. Our Christmas catalogue is now out, pop in and pick yours up - it is packed with ideas for everyone in the family.
