Bookshops and bookstores

Local bookshops for new books, rare and secondhand books in PR2


Madani Bookstore

30 Great George St, Preston PR1 1TJ, UK – 01772 914568

The best Islamic book shop in the UK in my opinion. A massive selection of English and Arabic books, children's books and Islamic merchandise. Definitely worth visiting but they also do online orders. The shop owner is very helpful and can tell you about any Islamic book that has been published!

Best shop for everything. Extensive range of books, gifts, thorbes, home decor and more. Always enjoy my visit.


3-5 Fishergate, Preston PR1 3LJ, UK – 01772 555766

This Waterstones is fantastic, spread out over two floors this store has more books than you'll ever be able to read. However don't let that deter you as everything in this store is well organised and set up in both genre and alphabetical order making discovery very simple. They also provide board games and stationary and while the prices can at times seem expensive you definitely get what you pay for.

Took my 6 year old we sat down she was doing activities. Feel free to choose a book sit down and enjoy. Staff really helpful. Spoilt for choice

Halewood & Sons

37 Friargate, Preston PR1 2AT, UK – 01772 252613

As with all good second hand bookshops they are a literary Aladdin's Cave and this is no exception. Visiting Preston over a year ago and taking my nephew to get his hair-cut, I stumbled across this emporium and purchased a book! It is literally overflowing with stock and any book lover will find it hard to resist if they can find it!

Very friendly, great old bookshop with a wide range of books!
