Local Bookshops

Hedgehog Bookshop

19 Little Dockray, Penrith CA11 7HL, UK – 01768 863003

Really great selection of books for adults, you will find several books you want to read across many genres. The small size of the shop is almost a strength because you have a lot of choice, but you are not overwhelmed by options. Also children's books downstairs. I've not been in that many bookshops, but this is easily the best one I've been in.

Got an impression that the new owner disproves of my parenting style.

Beckside Books

31 St. Andrews View, Penrith CA11 7YF, UK – 01768 895951

Brilliant little book shop that is great for browsing. Si fi section and spiritual are our favourite sections. But they have good selection of local history and history books to. Small selection of children's upstairs. Some books are very cheap others mid range but everyone should visit this shop at least once. Needs more books by Kevin J Anderson though!

Lovely little bookstore. Cosy and crammed full of all sorts. Check it out.
