Regency Bookshop in Surbiton

Last night Henriette Gyland and I had the pleasure of doing a book signing event at the Regency Bookshop in Surbiton and we had a wonderful time!

The store owner Pat and her helper Prue were extremely welcoming, and had invited all their customers for a special evening with wine and mince pies.  It was great fun to mingle and chat with them, all obviously book lovers – our favourite kind of people 🙂

The bookshop itself has an original Regency bow fronted window, which I loved, and inside is a veritable Aladdin’s cave of books, toys and stationery.  I couldn’t resist a bit of browsing myself and although I managed to resist the books, I found some fab Christmas wrapping paper with brussels sprouts on – I’m sure my OH is going to love that!

For anyone who lives anywhere near Surbiton – a visit to this shop is a must!  A huge thank you to Pat for having us!


  1. Sounds like you both had a wonderful time. And the shop looks lovely – as do your books :)… Oh, and you and Henri, too!

  2. Sounds like you had a great evening. Am a bit jealous – wish we had a really nice indie bookshop like this near me x

  3. Oh, that shop is most certainly worth a visit. It’s a virtual cornucopia for anyone who loves books. Think I might move in!

  4. Wow – it sounds fabulous. Anywhere that sells Brussels sprouts wrapping paper is worth a visit 🙂
