The main floor of Housmans has level access from the street. There are two steps leading to the back section of the shop, but we do have a ramp available.

Our second-hand basement and ‘Vaults’ area are located downstairs, and due to the nature of the building unfortunately there is no step free access.

There is no step-free access to the toilet.

Please get in touch if you have any questions about shop accessibility and we will do our best to help.


We send a once monthly newsletter with details of our upcoming events, book clubs, and other Housmans news. If you would like to subscribe, send an email to shop[at] with subscribe to newsletter as the subject line.
