About

Courtyard is a bookshop in the heart of Glastonbury which specialises in esoteric subjects. We have a large selection of titles on Religion, Earth Mysteries, Alchemy, Hermeticism, Magic and the Occult. Our shelves are full of titles by Aleister Crowley, A.E. Waite, Eliphas Levi, Rudolf Steiner, Paracelsus, Frances Yates, Franz Bardon, John Dee, Fulcanelli, Gurdjieff, Kenneth Grant, Austin Osman Spare and many others. We always have books about Glastonbury’s history, mythology and Arthurian associations, and titles by Glastonbury authors such as Dion Fortune, Frederick Bligh Bond and Katherine Maltwood.

In addition to all this you’ll find Fiction & Poetry, books on Drugs & Psychedelia, Healing, Yoga, Personal Development, Mysticism, Mythology & History, Spiritualism, the Paranormal, Science, Cooking and Nutrition – particularly vegetarian and vegan cook books, and much more! We also stock a large selection of antiquarian titles.

We buy collections large and small, providing they are within our subject area. Our staff are trained book-buyers. We will try and value your books on the same day and will pay you half of what we think the books will sell for in the shop; many people come back and sell us their books on a regular basis. Please contact us for further information.

We are open seven days a week, 9.30 am to 5.30 pm Monday to Friday, 10.00am to 6.00pm Saturday and Sunday
