Oxfam Bookshop Chiswick

Oxfam Books & Music Turnham Green is a local favourite for reasonably priced second hand books, CD's, DVD's and vinyl. Come along and have a good browse...


Turn left at Turnham Green tube, head under the bridge and we're a short walk along on the left.  Alternatively, head up Turnham Green Terrace from Chiswick High Road, and we're further up on the right.  Local bus routes include the E3, 27, 94, 237 and 272.


Donations of books, CD's DVD's and vinyl are very welcome.  If coming by car, you can stop to unload on the double yellow lines on the same side of the road as the shop, but on no account mount the pavement or park at the bus stop on the opposite side as you will be fined.  Overall, it's less tense to come to our side entrance on Thornton Avenue - access from Chiswick High Road, follow the No Through Road signs, and at the end you will see our door which has a grill on it and a buzzer to press for attention.  


We're looking forward to seeing you soon!
