Surrounded by the beautiful Yorkshire moors, Ilkley is a pretty spa town with a lovely 'Bettys' tea room- and a brilliant bookshop!
'The Grove Bookshop' is a welcoming, friendly shop with plenty to offer the book lover. The children's section offers a great range of picture books, 'first' books, fiction and YA titles. There is also a shelf of 'dyslexia-friendly' books, including Phil Earle's 'Mind the Gap'.
Much to my husband's delight, there is also a music section downstairs which offers a good range of jazz, blues and orchestral CDs and records and sheet music.
Whilst we were there, it was very obvious that this is a thriving, popular shop at the heart of its community. A constant stream of customers were warmly welcomed and left clutching new books- including me!
