cooking up a yarnstorm!

Atticus Books

Atticus has been sorted into… Slitherin!

Or perhaps in Slytherin
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.

The Sorting Hat

Open 10 – 5 Wednesday to Saturday


Atticus started in Liverpool way back in the 1970s and has never run as a conventional bookshop. We have a page about the history of the shop on the website. We support Tasikoki Animal Rescue Centre in Indonesia, run the Atticus One Minute Monologue Competition and have a packed programme of events over music festival weekends. We also like to support interesting projects like Yarn Caster.
