This great local bookshop is the best place to browse and buy for miles around – and is the epitome what a bookstore should be: well-stocked, welcoming and staffed by people who love books. The owners, John and Mary James, have been just over a decade, and won the 'Independent Bookshop of the Year' and the British Book Awards a few years ago, and the only wonder is that they haven't won it since, not only because their range is wide, well-chosen and beautifully displaye, with a regular churn of new and interesting volumes on tables, but also for the general ambience of the place, and its contribution to the local community - they run a book club once a month on Monday evenings, organise the annual Aldeburgh Literary Festival and even invite their regulars to share their Desert island Books, which naturally none can resist.
