Welcome to The Edge of the World Bookshop, the leading independent bookshop in Penzance. We have a fantastic range of books including the newest titles, classic, quirky and local books. We also stock beautiful gift ideas, stationery and cards.

Our knowledgeable staff are on-hand to advise and inspire in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. If you can’t find what you’re looking for we can order virtually any book in or out of print for you, normally within 24 hours.

Many of our books are discounted and we operate a loyalty card scheme for regular customers.
