The Children's Bookshop, Muswell Hill is an independent family-owned children's bookshop which first opened in 1974. 


We're so excited to be reopening to the public on

Monday 15th June. 

Opening hours:

Mon-Sat: 9.15-5.45

Sun: 11-4

We'll be taking social distancing precautions and using hand sanitiser to keep you and our staff safe.

We'll still be offering free delivery to our local customers who are self-isolating, so if you're not quite ready to come in,

do just get in touch via phone or email. 

We also have an online shop and can post books

all across the UK. 

We look forward to welcoming you back to the bookshop soon!

Stocking a huge range of fiction and non-fiction, our staff are always on hand to offer specialist advice on choosing books for children.


We run a bespoke subscription service for book lovers of all ages, and gift collections to mark any occasion - see more at our shop page.

We also offer a comprehensive service to schools and teachers, including school library supply, book fairs, author visits and open evenings. For more information on what we can offer you as a parent, carer, teacher or school please either contact us or take at our information for schools.
