Outside The Bookshop on the Heath in Blackheath. A mint green painted bookshop with a white gate and windows showing a wide range of books.


The Bookshop on the Heath is located at the top of Tranquil Vale in the lovely village of Blackheath in south east London between Lewisham and Greenwich. The shop first became a bookshop in 1949 and has remained one ever since.

Today they stock a wide range of books, from everyday reading copies to collectable modern first editions, fine bindings and antiquarian books. 

They have stock displayed over five rooms and two corridor areas, and are always happy for visitors to spend time exploring.
