Fredʼs Bookshop

We're a cosy independent bookshop in Ambleside, the heart of the English Lake District. Though we are small, we are mighty and well curated! We offer a next day ordering service in store as well as an online shop for home delivery.

Est. 1956 we have decades of experience selling maps, guides and books. Keep up with all our news on social media.
