Chaucer Head Bookshop, in Chapel Street, Stratford upon Avon     

Only a small proportion of our stock is listed on-line (we pride ourselves on our detailed and accurate book description and my, does that take time), so we highly recommend a visit to our real life, bricks and mortar shop.  You can't beat the feel, smell and atmosphere of an actual bookshop. Anyway, the best books are the ones you didn't know that you wanted ...

We are located at 21, Chapel Street, Stratford upon Avon, CV37 6EP. In due course we will put more detailed information about the best way to get here, public transport (ha!) and parking (double ha!). In the meantime, Stratford on Avon railway station is a ten minute walk away, keep going towards the town centre until you get to the roundabout by Barclay's Bank, then turn right along the High Street.  Chapel Street is straight on, in the next block. If arriving by bus the town centre stops are in Wood Street and Bridge Street. These streets are linked by the roundabout by Barclay's - once again turn onto the High Street and follow your nose.
