Tills on the Meadows

Established in 1985, Tills is one of Edinburgh's oldest surviving second-hand bookshops. Overlooking the Meadows park, the shop has carved out a small literary corner in Edinburgh's South Side. First opened by Rick and Ann Till, the shop was taken over in 2019 by Kate and Joshua McNamara.

The shop is very wee, but we've crammed it with a wide ranging library of beautiful books to serve the voracious readers of Edinburgh.

Open seven days a week, with a big selection of literary fiction both contemporary and classic, quirky sci-fi, history and biography, philosophy and sociology, and the odd antiquarian gem. There are a few seats, and staff ready for all manner of bookish discussions.

Come read with us.
