A little bit about us

Welcome to The Rocketship Bookshop, the new independent bookshop for children and young people, situated in the heart of Salisbury city centre.

Here at our shop we want to celebrate the future and help children and young adults to take control of theirs. We believe that independent bookshops, with knowledgeable, enthusiastic booksellers and a vibrant, inclusive atmosphere, can be a force for good in children’s lives. As well as stocking a range of exciting titles for babies, children and young adults, we will also have a specially curated section for adult titles and local authors. All of our stock is on our website, we offer a gift-wrapping service with recyclable paper, we can include handwritten cards with the message of your choice, and we can post out to any UK address. We also have lots of signed books by popular authors.

Our shop is on three floors with plenty of space for families to come and relax, play and explore. We may have our eyes on the future, but our building has a past that we also want to celebrate. 5 Bridge Street was once home to the much loved Everyman Bookshop that ran from the seventies to the early nineties and we are delighted to take up the mantle of passionate bookselling on Bridge Street once again.

Please do get in touch with us if you would like any more information.

We can’t wait to welcome you to The Rocketship Bookshop!
