Wardini Books is an independent bookshop with a touch of magic.

Run by Louise, (10 years experience teaching at primary and intermediate) and Gareth Ward, a.k.a. The Great Wardini (children's entertainer, magician and hypnotist), you’ll find your visit to Wardini Books an experience to remember.

Browse, chat, join us for coffee and cake and let us inspire your reading choices. Visit us on a Sunday and you'll more than like meet 'Super Sunday Sara' who's always happy to help you find that perfect book.

We have a fantastic selection of titles, and it's our pleasure to give advice and make recommendations.

We go the extra mile to source books that are difficult to find and are particularly adept at locating ‘the one reviewed by Kim Hill ? I think it has a red cover.’ 

We are passionate about reading and have a wealth of experience to call upon. We are happy to recommend quality books for children, teenagers and adults alike.

And if you ever hear a pitiful whimpering coming from the stock room at the back of the shop it's either shop-dog Tonks reminding us that it must soon be walks time or possibly Wardini lamenting the fact that it's ages until the new Lockwood and Co. is out.
