As someone who is advised to self isolate, I am not intending to open the shop for some time yet. If there is a specific item you want. I can go in and look for it, and if I have it, I can meet you outside for collection. Just give me a ring.

Queens Books will be closed for the foreseeable future. See you on the other side, hopefully!!
Google will not let me change my opening hours to closed, but I AM closed.

You may be hibernating indoors out of the bitter cold, but how much better would that be with a good book, or a DVD, or CD to keep you company. We are open today, Friday, and Saturday from 11.30am to 4.30pm, and all other days by giving me a bell to open up.

The shop will be closed today, the 13th February, and tomorrow, the 14th February. We will be open on Saturday, 15th February as usual.

Gerry is feeling much more chipper! The shop will be open Thursday, Friday, and Saturdays, but with possibly reduced hours. Give him a ring to make sure he is there if you are making a special journey.

Gerry is a little under the weather, so the shop will be closed for the time being.
See you soon!

Open from 11.30 am to 3pm on Christmas Eve, for books, posters, CD's, DVD's, vinyl and memorabilia.

On Christmas day, we will be snuggled up in bed until late!!
On Christmas Eve however, we will be here from 11:30 am to 3:30pm for all those last minute gifts you can't find elsewhere! Come and see what you can find for that one guy who is almost impossible to buy for!!

A wonderful, idiosyncratic, labyrinthine paradise for readers. And a lovely owner too.

My favourite shop. Guy who owns it is great to chat to about books and I could spend all day in there. Needs an arm chair.

Unusual and different!
