Niche Comics and Bookshop

If ever there was a a business that found its niche in the market then it is NICHE COMICS & BOOKSHOP…and don’t let the word “niche” fool you as there is far more on offer here than your Desperate Dan or Marvel Heroes, Spiderman and Iron Man.

Welcome to a family run bookshop with books, comics, graphic novels, superhero figures, board games, table top games, a large children’s section upstairs and a warm, friendly welcome.

Adam Makey, who runs Niche Comics together with his brother Guy, recently won the prestigious “Best Independent Store Manager or Employee” category of The Great British High Street of the Year Awards 2016 for his “creative comic-themed events” and “innovative ideas”. As well as organising those many events and themed days Adam also organises gaming sessions and book signings. The team at Niche Comics firmly believes that a shop offering this more traditional approach to leisure time is vital to the town.

The shop is located in premises dating back to 1573 and has been lovingly restored by the Makey family who are happy to show people around and share its diverse history.

With two floors of stock, plenty of places to sit and browse including a beautiful courtyard garden, Niche Comics is a real gem of peace and calm in a hurried world.
