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!

Shakespeare's Daughter and the Vicar
Wednesday 1st May

A loyal Browsers customer, and a familiar face in Woodbridge, Marion Wells has written a play which is to be performed at the Headgate Theatre in Colchester, on 7 & 8 June.

Called 'Shakespeare's Daughter and the Vicar', it is January 1662. William Shakespeare has been dead for more than 45 years. Many of the secrets about how he wrote his plays have been buried along with his bones in the church at Stratford-upon-Avon. A new vicar, curious about Shakespeare's plays, is sent to the town. He seeks out the person who still has first-hand knowledge of the Bard, Shakespeare's daughter Judith Quiney. 

Tickets are £12 and you can find more details here.
