Celebrating 30 years in Brixton, your local bookshop...online!

To order books for home delivery, please go to our Bookshop.org site here:


Bookmongers secondhand bookshop, a Brixton institution, has been a constant on Coldharbour Lane since 1992, and is widely known for its unique atmosphere and independent spirit.

We're open daily 10.30am-6.30pm and 11am-5pm on Sundays.

We stock a large, eclectic and ever-changing selection of secondhand and remaindered books in-store, and a still-wider selection for mail-order via uk.bookshop.org/shop/Bookmongers where most books currently in print are available. There's free shipping on orders over £25.

By choosing to shop here rather than Amazon you really will be helping us as we'll receive a small portion of the proceeds from your purchases. NB: do make sure our Bookmongers name and roundel (the dog with his nose in a book!) are showing at the top of your screen at check-out. Thank you, we greatly appreciate it.

And finally, don't forget to join us over on our Instagram page! (link below). We'll continue to regularly post interesting, fun, rare and downright odd Secondhand Gems there – and on our site here – for purchase and pick-up in-store or by mail-order to UK addresses (please email us to request postage costs).

Thank you for your support,

Love from all at Bookmongers X
