Drake the Bookshop

In a world of online shopping and supermarket book aisles, some might question whether there is a place for a dedicated book shop on today’s high streets.

Drake the Bookshop needs little introduction.

If you are well up on Teesside news, you will know the Silver Street book shop has won many accolades over the past two years gaining national recognition at awards including the very prestigious British Book Awards.

Owners Richard Drake and Melanie Greenwood started out four years ago at Stockton’s Enterprise Arcade and moved to the Silver Street premises a year later.
