Blackwell's University Bookshop

Opening Soon!, 42 University Rd, Belfast BT7 1NJ, UK – 07341 872988

I wanted to buy few books with my bursary money but they were out of stock. The staff suggested that I can use my bursary to buy gift cards which then can be used online, which is what I did. All books arrived quickly, but one was slightly damaged. I contacted their support and had a replacement sent out the next day, and was allowed to keep the old one. So in short, very good customer service both online and in store.

Great little store

A lovely bookshop with a great variety of books. The interior and exterior is nice. The staff are friendly and there is a great atmosphere to the place. Really like it there are lots of them and they vary in size. There is normally a cafe which serves nice food and drink so you can relax while reading a new book. I would not call this an ideal place to go for breakfast or dinner as it is more for a snack or maybe lunch. A really good place.

There is a great selection of books to choose from. These range from biographies to history to fiction and beyond. Staff willing to help if needed and won't bother you unless you ask. The only issue is their isn't many deals on books. Most are priced at RRP and can be sourced cheaper elsewhere.

Faith Mission Bookshop Belfast

Great place to browse broad range of Christian books and music. Beautiful gifts like mugs, artwork, ornaments, calendars. Got a lovely little nativity scene in here for my grandmother one Christmas. Really peaceful to browse in, with a few seats dotted about to take the weight off. Friendly, helpful staff, who'll order anything in for you.

Terrific range of books on various subjects. Really helpfully labeled throughout the store. Staff friendly and helpful.
