On a recent visit to Cambridge, I spotted this ‘heavenly’ bookshop. In between punting on the Cam and a cake and tea stop, my friends and I couldn’t help but take a quick look – I mean, who could resist this window display? It’s colourful, varied and has some cute cuddly toys for good measure. It was the icing on the cake to make the weekend perfect.
One of my friends is a teacher, and her eyes immediately lit up at the sight of the children’s section. There are lots of beautiful books for kids and I was delighted to see a few of my favourites, including Quentin Blake’s Mrs Armitage on Wheels – what a great book!
The Angel Bookshop is definitely one to stop off at if you are in need of a present for a child as it’s full of cuddly and wooden toys and literary gift packs. I was quite tempted with the Moomin mugs myself…
I think it’s pretty much impossible to see this many gorgeous classics on a bookshelf and not buy one. This time I chose the rather bulky The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy. I’ve become quite addicted to the series on Netflix, so hope the book lives up to expectations!
So, if you ever find yourself in Cambridge, why not pop into this delightful bookshop and treat yourself?
