Shrewsbury's Independent Bookshop

Located on Fish Street in the heart of the town, Pengwern Books has been serving book lovers in Shrewsbury and beyond for over 16 years. With a small but carefully curated stock, readers will find something different from the mainstream on the shelves and what isn't on the shelf can be ordered quickly.

But more importantly Pengwern offers a first class browsing experience. Browsing is something that online retailers and the big chains just don’t do as well, if at all, and Pengwern Books is especially good at it!

I would be so much poorer without the opportunity to browse that Pengwern offers. What you find here is shelf after shelf of books you didn’t know you wanted to read….one of the best browsing experiences on offer in any bookshop I've been into! All this in a stylish, comfortable environment and the chance for coffee and cake as well! If you don’t believe me go and have a look - you too can stretch your mind and delight your soul. Happy browsing, dear reader!
