Don't be fooled by the size, this bookshop is not only stocked to the rafters but they will also often order you in books that you need or want if they don't already have it on their shelves.
The man who owns it is super friendly and recognises all his regular customers and is often up for a little chat while you browse. His literary knowledge is expansive and you can always ask him to recommend you a new book based on ones you have previously enjoyed.
The store also hosts a number of events such as book signing (I met JK Rowling!) and reading groups for children in the area.
You just need to see ''the face'' of the bookshop outside it's impossible not getting in. I follow all of the new book headlines and this is the place where I look for them. I've heard that they had -10 % off on some days during December, but I couldn't take on this. Staff is very nice, positive and always very helpful.
For travel, cookery and children's books Village Books is very well stocked as well as selling a range of best sellers and classics. But due to the limited shop size, you are not going to find every book that you ever wanted here.
It is however, very pleasant, personal and all round a nice shop to buy from.
Much more than just a village book shop in my mind.
Located in the heart of Dulwich Village, Village Books is small but stocks a great range of books - downstairs has a great range of childrens books as well as fiction, both bestsellers and classics. Upstairs covers biography, cooking, history, art, philosophy and lots of travel guides. It's a nice place to browse for a half hour or so and if you're looking to get a present you're bound to find something suitable. The staff are friendly and helpful and will order books quickly.
