3-7 Union St, Aberdeen AB11 6BG, UK – 01224 592440

Best book shop in Aberdeen although there isn't much competition these days. Well laid out, helpful and knowledgeable staff.

I love browsing around and choosing books but could not stay long because of the noisy escalator - please either fix it or turn it off!

Blackwell's University Bookshop

99 High St, Aberdeen AB24 3EN, UK – 01224 486102

Very helpful staff. If you have any questions you can ask them and they will try their best to help you. The store has a large variety of books and some board games. They also sell a small variety of Pokémon and Magic trading cards.

Helpful staff and willing to order items that they don't stock - great for hard to find items and lots of textbooks. Friendly staff.
