The Chaucer Bookshop

The Chaucer Bookshop is situated in a beautiful 18th century building within Canterbury's city walls, only 5 minutes walk from the Cathedral. It was established in 1956, and Robert has owned and run the business since 1976. There is a wide range of books on two floors, from fine bindings to paperbacks, and a good selection of original prints and maps. There is also a great collection of greeting cards.

Visiting us

There are two car parks and the bus station within 3 minutes walk. The high speed train to London St Pancras takes 56 minutes at its fastest, and there are slower trains to Victoria and Charing Cross. Both East and West stations are within walking distance. The Channel Tunnel is 30 minutes away, and the ferry port of Dover about 40 minutes.
