Richard Newton founded Bookingham Palace in Chester market 2016

We are the only independent book shop in Chester; we are cheaper than online and offer a trade in service. We sell all manner of books and vinyl records, with a dedicated transport section with over 1,000 railway, steam, shipping, bus and aviation books.

One customer said: “As an avid reader, I am always on the lookout for books, especially books that in many instances are hard to obtain. In Bookingham Palace I have found a place which is both friendly and welcoming; a place that has great taste in books and covers a vast range. For all book lovers out there I recommend a visit. You won’t be disappointed.”

We offer discount on bulk buys and will purchase or trade from customers. If you’re an avid reader, from fact to fiction you will not be disappointed.

If you like your vinyls try before you buy, we have a record player in store.
