Situated in the heart of Sydenham, close to the station, Kirkdale Bookshop is a combination of award-winning bookshop and cultural hub. We have an extensive collection of new and second-hand books for all age groups and interests.
Do come and see us!


As inevitable tighter restrictions come into place to help slow the spread of Covid-19 we want to wish everyone well and to thank you all for continuing to shop with us. We are still open and remaining vigilant to make sure the shop is as safe a space as it can be for all your bookish needs. We’re now gearing up for the Christmas period and have a lovely stock of Christmas cards in for you to send to family and friends this year. We also have a wonderful range of 2021 calendars and diaries in for those who want to say goodbye to 2020… 

For the time being we are sticking to our revised opening hours of 11am-4pm, Monday-Saturday.

We are accepting orders for collection (local delivery options also available). You can contact us on the phone, via email, through our social media accounts – or you can pop into the shop!

Keep an eye out for an announcement regarding our ONLINE SHOP – we’re currently setting up our website so you’ll be able to buy books directly from it! 

Stay well, buy books, keep reading!
