    Cambridge University Press Bookshop opened in 1992, but the shop itself has been around for a great deal longer and selling books all the while; since 1581 in fact. Passing from hand to hand over the centuries, 1 Trinity Street was taken over in 1846 by Daniel and Alexander Macmillan who employed their nephew Robert Bowes as an apprentice. He would later become partner and eventually take on the premises.
The shop remained Bowes & Bowes until 1986 when it became Sherratt & Hughes before we took it on in 1992. We are still going strong today, showcasing around 50,000 different titles in the shop. In 2008 we expanded round the corner into 27 Market Hill where we opened our specialist Education and English Language Teaching shop the following year. We are proud to continue the fine old tradition of selling books here and contributing our bit to the fine history of 1 Trinity Street.
