Our doors are closed until further notice, but we're open for orders.

Due to the current pandemic, it isn't business as usual at Brick Lane Bookshop.

Although we're closed for browsing, we're open for phone enquiries and arranged, distanced collections between 10am-5pm, Monday to Friday (times may vary for bank holidays). 

You can still buy books through our online shop, email us your orders, or ask for recommendations - we're offering free delivery to Tower Hamlets residents for orders over £15, and can post anywhere in the UK.

Many thanks for your continued support. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Keep well!
