The Petersfield Bookshop is a large and rambling bookshop of a kind that is harder and harder to find these days: a browser’s paradise. We have every kind of book from modern secondhand paperbacks to collectible and antiquarian books of considerable value. We would love to welcome you in person but if you can’t make then you can search a selection of our stock here on this website or on Abebooks. We can also order new books, often for next day collection, and we have an extensive book search service for any title that you are finding hard to get hold of. // On top of all this we offer bookbinding services and picture cleaning and restoration. // To get a sense of the shop please take a moment to click on the ‘virtual tour’ button to the right and you can have a virtual browse. // As well as books, there are plenty of other things to see in the shop, including a wide selection of maps, prints and pictures of all kinds. There is a display of vintage dolls and toys from Ann Westwood’s own collection including a huge dolls house on open display in the shop. The managing partner, John Westwood, also has his full-sized replica of the FA Cup proudly on show, decked out in, of course, Portsmouth FC colours who won it in 1939 and 2008
