Niche Comics Bookshop

Back to Activities

An Independent Autism Friendly Bookshop, specialising in books, games, comics, gifts and events for the local community. The shop was built in 1573 and has quiet spaces to browse on two floors, with a courtyard garden where you can often hear music during the Acoustic Nights.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • You can feel part of a safe, inclusive, accessible, welcoming environment that is for everyone
  • It provides a space to laugh, chat and discover new interests
  • When joining their acoustic sessions; music can relax the mind and alleviate stress
'Like a great big welcoming family' 'The shop has a little area for children to read and choose their own books'  

Here is a video tour of the bookshop, so you can get a feel for it before you go:
