Red Lion Books is an independent book shop in Colchester’s High Street. We have an unshakable belief in the value of physical books and their continuing, rightful place at the heart of the town. We present the best books we can find across both adults and children’s sections - thoughtfully chosen and attractively displayed.
The shop is firmly embedded in the cultural life of Colchester and beyond. We have strong relationships with local schools, supporting author visits and organising book fairs – particularly around World Book Day in March each year. We host author events both in Colchester and further afield; travelling around the county through our close involvement with the Essex Book Festival.
The shop was founded in 1978 by Peter and Sarah Donaldson.
