Books, fabulous books! They’re always a great idea. And, here at Gordale, our shelves are full of inspiration.

General gardening books sit alongside specialist plant and garden design publications, while our exciting cookery books entice foodies! We’re also proud of our local books – from local history and walks to cycle tours and tearoom crawls – they make great gifts.

We don’t expect the little ones to be quiet in the bookshop. Indeed, we have the likes of Peppa Pig and Fireman Sam to excite and captivate them, as well as a host of activity books. Oh, and we have weekly promotions too, so you can often pick up books at half price.

What do we stock?

Local Interest

If you like local history, we’ve got pictures of Wirral, Chester and Liverpool to transport you back in time. We’ve also got local walking guides, including tea rooms and pub crawls, and walks that allow you to discover more about history and industry in this lovely part of the world.


The little ones love our book department. It’s full of laughter and learning with our learner books, action books, bedtime story, simple knowledge, and learn by play books. Come and see for yourself.

Cookery, Gardening

From simple dishes to more advanced meal ideas like one pot suppers, we have all kinds of cookery books, as well as specialist books, on everything from soups and potatoes and – you guessed it – gardening! These include specialist titles the constant gardener will love, such as roses and orchids through to controlling garden pests. Our book titles are always changing too so there are plenty of reasons to keep coming back.
