Chapter House Books

Chapter House Books is a bibliophile's delight; filled to the rafters with an incredible display of second-hand books which reward random browsing just as much as when searching for a particular title. With shelves bursting with over 30,000 books, both hardbacks and paperbacks, there's also second-hand sheet music, DVDs and CDs. Chapter House can arrange bookbinding and provide a new book ordering service. It's a well-organised space, and easy to navigate; and it's exactly the type of independent book shop you’d hope to discover in such an impressive, historic town. Greeted with a welcome from owner Claire Porter, whose smiling face is always peeking out from behind a pile of books on her desk, you’re invited to tour the wondrous collection of books. There is no better or friendlier place to begin your exploration of Sherborne!

The heart of Sherborne lies in the interesting character in each of it's buildings and the individual characters inside every independent shop and cafe. With the oldest building, The Abbey, dating back as far as AD705, English writers throughout the ages have praised the town's inescapable beauty. Following the footsteps of poets and novelists such as Thomas Hardy and John le Carré, you can still enjoy and discover pockets of architectural beauty from centuries past with a walk through those quaint and rambling streets. Boasting traditional charm and a friendly village atmosphere, the local independents are a winner when it comes to getting a feel for the Sherborne community.
