The Whitby Bookshop

Welcome to The Whitby Bookshop, a much loved Independent Bookshop, established in 1985, nestled in the heart of Whitby on the stunning North Yorkshire Coast.

One of the UK's favourite independent bookshops, we're loved for our wonderful choice of books, our friendly and knowledgeable staff, our quirky gifts and our unique building.

We offer in-store ordering, a customer loyalty scheme, reading groups, and author events and signings. Contact us for stock enquiries.

Our quirky historic shop can be found on Church Street among some of Whitby’s finest independent shops and cafes on the old East side.

You can pick up a copy of Bram Stoker’s Dracula before heading on up the cobbles and climbing the 199 steps that lead to the famous heritage site of Whitby Abbey, Stoker’s inspiration for his classic Gothic novel.
