Blackwell's Edinburgh South Bridge

Blackwell's Bookshop has been serving the needs of academics, students, and book lovers since 1879. Our year-round events programme is currently on hold although please check out our social media events on Twitter @blackwellbooks


Edinburgh's oldest bookshop is situated right in the heart of the Old Town. On our three floors you will find anything from the latest bestseller to university textbooks. Make sure to visit our Scottish Room for the best selection of Scottish books in the city!

The majority of our events are held on our First Floor and our event space has level access.

There is on-street parking in Infirmary Street, Chamber Street, Drummond Street and Roxburgh Place (paid till 6:30pm), and Blue Badge Holders can park on the single yellow just outside Caffè Nero on Infirmary Street. 

Our Caffè Nero is open till 7pm on weekdays for pre-event coffee and cake (or tea and panini).
