Storysmith is a new independent bookshop for Bristol, on North Street in Bedminster. We do events, coffee, next-day ordering and worldwide delivery.

Subscription gifts

We do book subscriptions and gift vouchers, which make excellent gifts.


We have a very active programme of literary events, hosted at the shop and at select external venues. You can view a full list here, but here are some upcoming events you might like:

We stock a tightly curated range of fiction, non-fiction and children’s books. Our non-fiction sections include cookery, art, nature, science & thought, society, interesting lives and history. We’re also very happy to provide (and receive) recommendations.

We’re proud to serve delicious Triple Co Roast coffee and cakes from Mark’s Bread, and encourage you to linger with both while browsing.
