The Grove Bookshop Loader

The Grove Bookshop, 10 The Grove, Ilkley, LS29 9EG.

We are open 7 days a week. Monday to Saturday 9am-5.30pm; Sundays 11am-4pm


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 a wide range of titles in various genres including fiction, crime, children's fiction and non-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, travel writing and coffee table books.

The Grove Bookshop is regularly shortlisted for Independent Bookshop of the Year, and has been again, this year!

We can tailor our stock to our customers so you will find a range of new, exciting and unusual titles, alongside classics and best-selling authors. And if there is something you want that we don't have, we can order it in for the next day.
