A little bit about us
Among the best-known specialist shops in the town is the Ryde Bookshop, a book enthusiast’s paradise. Situated at 135 High Street, opposite the Catholic church, the bookshop has more than 30,000 new and secondhand books on all subjects, displayed in ten rooms. Visitors will find specialist books rather than bestsellers. The range of subjects includes Island history, travel, transport, the military, literature and titles on many other themes, plus a range of postcards. Ryde Bookshop has been established 20 years and started as a hobby, but has grown into a thriving business. If you can’t find the title you are looking for, any book in print can be ordered and will arrive within a few days.
