The Little Apple Bookshop has been selling books in the heart of York since 1997. We have always enjoyed being a destination bookshop and having direct contact with visitors to our beautiful city, and with our loyal customers from York, the UK and around the World.    


Things have been a little different in 2020/2021 as you can imagine: we had to navigate the shop through three lockdowns, with no customers allowed in the shop for six months, and when we were open, we limited customer numbers, and introduced screens, a mask policy, a staff bubble system and copious amounts of hand sanitiser!!   

 We set up this website in the first lockdown, so that the Little Apple shopping experience could be brought into the safety of your own homes.


 The support (and purchases) from the public were very appreciated, and helped us keep going,  throughout all the above.

So thank you!!

In April 2021, we were delighted to open our doors again and get back to relative normality! 

We are currently open seven days a week (10-5),

plus we have decided to keep the

website running too for now. 

We hope to see you soon in York, but do feel free to order from us on-line, or get in touch with any book-related needs or enquiries.
