Owl Bookshop

A clever rearrange has made Kentish Town’s Owl Bookshop easier to negotiate: classic fiction has been given room to expand and there are some armchairs to help you relax while you mull over your choices. Trading for a good three decades, the shop covers food and drink, gardening, sport and fiction, with all stock judiciously laid out. There’s a strong children’s section to the right as you come in and a smart selection of stationery and magazines for sale. Owl also stocks some DVDs (mainly cult and classic films) and CDs (particularly classical, world music and jazz). You can combine fiction and non-fiction in the popular four-for-three promotions. All in all, a valuable local resource in this part of north London.

Popped in earlier today to get my younger son some stationary for school! I was so impressed by the variety available! Will definitely be coming back here!

Brilliant shop. Good selection and events. And if they don't have the book they will get it.

Never lets me down. Will always order for very fast delivery if not in stock and will find a book if you remember just a few details about it. And a welcome loyalty scheme too. Means you don't need the big chains.
