For Winnie-the-Pooh fans

We stock modern copies of the famous Winnie-the-Pooh books by AA Milne, illustrated by EH Shepard, and celebrate Dartmouth's connections to his son, Christopher Robin Milne who ran the Harbour Bookshop in Dartmouth for 20 years from the 1950s.

Come and see our books and Pooh postcards and prints, and talk to our manager, Andrea, who remembers Christopher at the Harbour bookshop.

We also have many interesting books maps and guides for visitors to help them make the most of our lovely historic  town.

Our children's corner and Pooh in the shop.

A Homeland Denied 

We are holding an event jointly with Dartmouth Library at 5.30pm on Tuesday 23 May entitled A Homeland Denied - in the footsteps of a Polish PoW by Irena Kossakowski.

Her book is based on memories of her father, a young Polish university student in 1939 who joined the army only to be captured by the Russians and sent to a labour camp. This is the dramatic and poignant story of his  wartime experiences, eventually joining the British army. The event marks the allied victory at Monte Casino, where he fought, and where there was huge loss of life, particularly amongst the Polish forces. Tickets cost £2.50 from the library.

The book is for sale at the shop.
