This place is an absolute gem. It's a great independent bookshop with a great selection, including a wide range for kids. The feel and atmosphere is something the online retailers simply can't compete with.

The Grove Bookshop and Music is a little gem. An absolute find for bibliophiles like myself. The people working there are friendly, knowledgeable and super professional. The shop itself is cosy (hyggelig) and the wooden bookshelves with gold writing gives a touch of Harrypottereske magic....More

Very friendly and knowledgeable. If they have not got the book you are after they will get it for you, phone you when it arrives. You can also book your tickets there for the Ilkley Literature Festival.

Browse before you buy; take your grandchildren to choose a book to treasure. Downstairs is music, to listen to and to buy, an excellent selection of sheet music and CDs including all the standard teaching materials. A rare den of delights.
