Topping & Company Booksellers

A richer reading experience awaits

Now celebrating its tenth year at the heart of Bath's literary scene, Topping & Company Booksellers is one of the best indie bookshops in the country and one of Bath's most cherished independents. Pay them a visit and you’re likely to be offered complimentary tea or cafetiere coffee while you browse through more than 50,000 titles on the shelves. They’ve also recently installed bespoke lighting and floor-to-ceiling bookcases, complete with rolling library ladders to make the experience that bit more magical. A haven for bibliophiles and fellow reading enthusiasts, the bookshop has a real community feel, with knowledgeable booksellers always on hand to make thoughtful recommendations.

In addition to running the bookshop itself, Topping & Company's team of passionate booksellers host an all-year-round literary festival which brings a wide variety of celebrated authors and famous names to Bath, culminating each year in the Bath Autumn Literary Festival.

Drop in for a browse with some tea or coffee! Cornelia, Owner
