Red Lion Books is the sole surviving independent bookshop in Colchester. (There were once 6). Situated on the High Street in the town centre it is still owned and run by Peter and Sarah Donaldson who founded the shop back in 1978. We are strongly embedded in the cultural life of our town and beyond. We have strong relationships with schools, taking books into Colchester schools, supporting author visits and providing book fairs particularly around World Book Day. We host in store author events and particularly support local authors And we are involved with author events outside the shop both in Colchester and further afield travelling around the county to provide books for literary events through our involvement with the Essex Book Festival. We support literary excellence enthusiastically in both adults & children's sections. And we do this by filling our shop with a large range of new titles each week, thoughtfully selected and attractively displayed, combined with a carefully curated stock holding.
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 9am-5.30pm
We have the best range of greetings cards from independent smaller scale suppliers featuring specialist ranges and in particular designs from regional artists.
We also have a gallery area downstairs featuring regularly changing exhibitions of work by local artists
