The Kemptown Bookshop

Books: The Kemptown Bookshop is Brighton’s award-winning independent bookshop. Established 50 years ago, it has three storeys of books for both adults and children. There is a fast, often next day, ordering service for books not in stock.

Stationery and Toys: The Bookshop also sells a select range of premium stationery, from blank books, pens and paperweights, to bookmarks and ex libris stickers. It also stocks a carefully sourced range of children’s toys and games, from cotton dolls and spinning tops, to chess and Chinese chequers.

Prints: The Bookshop is also home to the Bookroom Art Press. The complete print collection can be purchased, framed or unframed, directly from the Bookshop. (Or search online Here).
