Till’s Bookshop

Looking out over the Meadows, Till’s is a second-hand bookshop best known for its rare books collection, aptly known as its ‘beautiful book collection’. One of the oldest second-hand bookshops in the city, it’s now a staple of the Southside literary scene and has a wide selection of fiction and nonfiction titles.

Named after founders Rick and Ann Till, Till’s Bookshop has become something of an institution amongst Edinburgh’s book-loving public since opening its doors in 1986. Located in the south of the city, the shop is particularly popular with students. Fiction and non-fiction are both well represented, and the shop is very well organised. All books are on shelves, so there’s no need to hunt through massive piles of books as is sometimes the case with indies. There is a roaring fireplace at the back of the store where you can sit and read at your leisure. Alternatively, pop round to Cult Expresso around the corner.
