Situated in the heart of Norwich, in the Lanes area of the city, The Book Hive celebrates the beauty of printed material – as well as the pleasures of whimsical, alternative curation. The shop is well-known for foregoing traditional sections, instead favouring mixes of the booksellers’ picks which allows for a unique browsing experience and the kind of serendipitous discovering that more traditional layouts – or algorithms – cannot replicate. Pop in for a hand-picked selection of the newest Fiction and Non-Fiction, plus Poetry, Small Press, Children’s, Cookery and Art titles.

The Book Hive is a wonder for both books and the soul - everyone should go there, often.

What an independent bookshop can offer is discovery: the chance to be introduced, via a personally curated selection, to words or pictures you may very well fall in love with. The Book Hive does this magnificently.
