Bateman's Scullery bookshop

Batemans Books for Boys Exhibition

Discover new spaces at Rudyard Kipling's family home as the Scullery opens for the first time in nearly a century.

The Scullery is now home to one of the largest collections of second-hand Kipling books, many of which have been out of print for a long time. There is also a great collection of children's books from the last century that will bring back fond memories and capture the imagination of children today.

Proceeds from the shop will go towards our Storytelling project to create a very special storytelling space where Kipling's magiclal stories can be brought to life for everyone to enjoy.
