St Albans Cathedral Bookshop & Gift Shop, St Albans
Situated within the Cathedral building, the Bookshop offers a wide range of religious and secular publications appealing to a large local congregation and the many visitors and tourists throughout the year.
Current religious bestsellers are always displayed and there is a good range of Bibles, prayer books and books to appeal to young people of all ages. The range of high quality greetings cards for religious and other occasions is acknowledged as the best in the district.
The associated Gift Shop is located nearby in the Chapter House. It stocks a good range of CDs and audio cassettes, particularly of choral and organ music, amongst a wide and varied selection of religious items, ornaments, jewellery and other gift merchandise.
Mission Statement The Cathedral Bookshop and Gift Shop operate with predominantly voluntary helpers as part of the Cathedral's 'Ministry of Welcome' to the local congregation and visitors from far and wide. We hope to provide a relaxing environment to complement the experience of a visit to this historic place of worship dedicated to the martyrdom of Alban, and to offer support, information, inspiration and guidance.
