We love this town

 A good bookshop doesn’t just sell good books! It is also an asset to the community in a variety of often unseen ways. The Archway has been a part of Axminster’s life for more than 50 years.


Booking office

One of the services we provide for the community involves acting as a booking office for local events. It is a service which covers not just the Guildhall but events elsewhere in the town and nearby villages.

Totally Locally

Axminster’s has a wonderful mix of small independent shops. Their long term survival depends upon the continuing loyalty of  the community. We are working with other traders to promote that vital cause.
