The Speaking Tree Bookshop
A fantastic independent place for finding mind, body and spirit titles in the heart of Glastonbury town centre. With a huge stock of books about religion, mythology, history, folklore, magic and ritual and health and healing – it’s well worth a gander for those looking for something a little different. The Speaking Tree stocks brand new books at fantastic prices, often with great discounts, so you can really stock up on a few unusual reads. Looking for a quick introduction on the tradition of Tarot, we purchased a cheap deck of cards here, and a fantastically illustrated guide to reading our destinies… highly recommended talking a walk up the Tor with whatever treasures you discover at The Speaking Tree!
With the scent of incense fresh in our nostrils, Courtyard Books was the first bookshop we stumbled across in Glastonbury. There’s a fantastic selection of second-hand mind, body and spirit books; as well as art, health, philosophy, fiction, poetry and history titles. Such is the variety and quality of books at Courtyard Books, we walked away with a text on ancient alien gods, as well as a book about soul mates. The art and photography section is well worth a look here, with a number of exhibition catalogues and art history textbooks available. Those looking for a good brew after a perusal at Courtyard Books will be delighted with the Blue Note Café found next door.
