Bookshop Tour on Four Wheels – Bourne Bookshop in Lincolnshire (Number Six)

Bourne Bookshop

While in Lincolnshire, we decided to visit Bourne in search of a bookshop. To my delight we found Bourne Bookshop. As you can see from the photos above it is a small shop, but well stocked with fiction, non fiction and children’s books. I called in and had the second door opened so it was a wide and completely flat access. Once in you can see that there is plenty of room to move around. There are plenty of just published hardback fiction books on display as well as paperbacks to look at and choose from. The place is bright and inviting, as well as having a friendly member of staff. I could have spent even more money in there than I did!

The card I was handed does not mention a website, but they invite enquiries on enquiries@bournebookshop.co.uk , or by phone 01778 392777.  The address is

19 North Street, Bourne, Lincolnshire PE10 9AE.

The business owner is Karen Smith. I am not sure of the opening hours – I believe they were generous (9 – 5.30) so I think you should have a good chance of getting in!

I am trying to track down more accessible bookshops in the UK for visiting – so if you know of one, or even work in one, please let me know! ( My definition of accessible is one that I can get into with my trusty powerchair Morgan – see above!)

  1. Am much appreciating yr bookshop tours,focusing on wheelchair access. Have been reading yr blog for some years now and am somewhat shy about commenting, but just had to thank you for doing this !

    1. Gosh, I am so touched that you have been reading my ramblings! I have recently appealed for more bookshop visit ideas on twitter, so now just need to get out there and track them down (as well as the ones I discover by accident!)

  2. I don’t get out much,but when I do I always try to get to a bookshop. Buying online is fine but there’s nothing like actually being in a proper shop. It’s a chance to find something new to you that you would probably never have come across otherwise. I have difficulty walking very far or for long periods of time, and stairs are a problem so I look for bookshops with helpful staff and a chair to sit on while I browse. Perhaps I could let you know if I find one with good wheelchair access, though I would add that’s not likely to happen for a while at this point !
    Many thanks for your blog Joules.
