Welcome

Welcome to Browsers Bookshop

Located right in the heart of Woodbridge, a beautiful riverside town in Suffolk, we are one of the region’s leading independent bookshops and have been here since the 1960s (first as the Deben Bookshop).

We have books for all ages with a large section for young people, and we offer the personal touch with recommendations and advice you won’t get anywhere else.

Throughout the year we run a variety of author events, introducing new writers in intimate gatherings in the bookshop as well as bringing high profile and popular names to larger venues throughout Woodbridge.

Each month we have Browsers Book Group, an open meeting where coffee and flapjack or a glass of wine helps fuel a friendly discussion of the latest novel.

We support local schools and community activities, often selling tickets for events and running promotions in our attractive window displays. We also act as a rich resource for local books and leaflets.

If we don't have the title you're looking for on our shelves, we can usually order it in to arrive the next day.

We hope you'll call by and see us very soon!

Learning to speak Shakespeare
Thursday 7th March

This looks fantastic! How to Speak Shakespeare's Verse with the actress and artist, Jenny Hall.

Jenny is one of our customers at Browsers  and she called in the other day to let us know about the workshops she runs throughout the country, in schools and colleges, but also in the Low Farm Barn, Laxfield, Suffolk!

There is a workshop this coming weekend - Sat 9th March - and also on Fri 15 March and Sat 23 March, from 2.30-4.30pm. It's suitable for teens (£15) and adults (£20).

Jenny teaches the verse-speaking method of her late father Sir Peter Hall, the founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company and later the Director of the National Theatre.

What a marvellous opportunity to delight in Shakespeare's verse. Find out what a workshop might be like by viewing this clip. Or register by emailing shakespearetutor@gmail.com
