About Dark Peak Books

Books open doors

There has been an independent bookshop at 96 High Street West in Glossop for over 40 years.  We (Mel) took over the shop in June 2021 and with the help of a fab team, Katrina and Tim, we offer a carefully selected range of books, gifts and greetings to suit all tastes.

We can give you expert advice on books and can order almost any title in for you.  We offer a friendly, welcoming environment to browse and a wide range of hand-picked gifts, games and greetings cards.

We run a monthly book club at a local bar, and we hold regular events for adults and children including book readings, author signings and will soon be re-starting children’s bedtime stories.

Whether you like walking in the Peak District, learning about local history, an exciting cookbook, a good bit of new or classic fiction, a fabulously illustrated children’s story or something else, we’ve got just the book for you!

Gift Certificate

Why not treat a loved one or a friend to a wonderful gift voucher to be used on anything you find in our lovely little store.

It’s quick to sort out, simply fill in the form, you choose the amount and we’ll be in touch.

Book Subscription

Whether you’re treating yourself or a loved one, this is a thoughtful gift that keeps on giving all year round, to all book lovers, of all ages and for all special occasions.

We offer 3,6 and 12 month book subscriptions for you to enjoy.
