Description

A few years ago the little dorp of Richmond was established as the first Book Town in the country and on the continent. Today there are a dozen bookshops in the village.

The bookshops specialize in Africana with a focus on early travellers, explorers, hunters and missionaries, South African fauna and flora, fiction, bibliographies, history, the Anglo Boer war and Rhodesia.

These bookish attractions are established in six Karoo-style houses, six converted stables and other outbuildings – housing used books ranging from art to warfare, aviation to natural history, biographies and children’s literature.

Shops are open seven days a week, from 07:00 to 19:00 during peak season and from 09:00 to 17:00 during the rest of the year.
This place was added by The Royal at Richmond

Directions

From the N1 take the turn-off to the town in Spring Street at the Caltex garage. Head down this street for 300 m until you find Richmond Books and Prints. The bookshops are concentrated in this area and further down the road – all within walking distance.
