The Bookshop

Welcome to Griffin Books! 

We're a small independent bookshop located in the lovely coastal town of Penarth, just outside Cardiff. We opened our doors in September 2014 and in 2023 were named UK Independent Bookshop of the Year at the British Book Awards. 

We’re dedicated to finding the perfect book for every customer, whether that’s through the wide range of fiction and non-fiction titles we have in store, or through our speedy online home delivery service. We offer a free click and collect service as well as postal delivery for orders placed online. 

And remember if you don't know what you're looking for, we're always happy to make recommendations - from fantastic fiction, compelling non-fiction and spellbinding YA to crossword puzzles, jigsaws and children's activity books - we have something on our shelves for everyone.

We also love to bring you literary experiences - we host regular author events and signings, bringing some of the biggest names and most exciting debut authors from across the UK and beyond to Penarth. We also run a number of Book Clubs for adults, children and teens. You can view our full events programme and book tickets online, here.

Thank you for shopping local and supporting Griffin Books!
