Books on the Rise is a new indie bookshop on Richmond Hill offering a curated range of diverse contemporary fiction, drama and non-fiction. We offer regular literary events and you can hire our literary lounge or bookshop for book launches, author talks or private events.  Contact to find out more. Why not try one of our monthly literary walks?
You can book those here: Richmond Literary Walks Tickets, Multiple Dates | Eventbrite. We also have various spaces for hire at Books on the Rise, pricing and options can be found here.

We want to be more than a bookshop, a community hub, a place to spark inspiration and ideas. Situated on Hill Rise in Richmond, you can visit us and continue up the hill to see one of the best views in London. If you’re not local, but would like to support us, our full stock is available here and on

The bookshop is also partnered with our in-house indie publisher, Aurora Metro and Supernova Books.
