Seven Stories The National Centre for Children's Books

About us: 

Seven Stories is The National Centre for Children’s Books. We believe that children’s books are an essential part of our childhood, our national heritage and our culture. We want to inspire a love of reading across generations.

Seven Stories is the only place in the UK dedicated to the art of children’s books. Everything we do inspires children and grownups to choose, share, read and enjoy the best children’s literature. 

Join us seven days a week to experience Seven Stories’ trademark vibrant costumes, lively interactive storytelling, quality craft activities and fabulous exhibitions.​
