Welcome to P&G Wells
Independent Booksellers
in Winchester
for over 250 years.

P&G Wells has an old shop on College Street in Kingsgate Village, with fine books for all the family - and a particularly large children's department.
If you can't visit the shop, please click here to order or reserve the books you need.

We run the campus bookshop at the University of Winchester.

P&G Wells provides book fairs, author events, and sales to schools throughout Hampshire & beyond.

And we have on our premises a traditional bookbinder.

If you want to look inside our shop from where you are now, find us on Google+ here.
