About Us - Jarrold Book Department

Welcome to the book department at Jarrolds of Norwich. Jarrolds has been in business since 1770, we’ve been booksellers on London Street, Norwich since 1823 and are proud to be part of an East Anglian institution.

Jarrold Book DepartmentWe’re also proud to be a (deliberately) old-fashioned independent bookseller and are completely focused on bringing our customers the very best range and service we can. Most of our staff have many years of experience as booksellers and you can find out who we are here.

The book department had a complete refit in May 2013 and moved to a new home on the lower ground floor of the store. Customers tell us they love the new space and that it feels more inviting and… well, bookish than it ever did before. They also love the new coffee bar, Chapters, located right by the department.

Author Events

We love bringing authors and readers together, whether hosting book launches and signing sessions in store, taking authors to schools to meet their fans, or at one of the ever-popular Jarrolds literary lunches (usually held twice a year in spring and autumn).
