About Us

Daleside Books is a family-run bookstore based in Yorkshire, England. We have nearly 1/2 million titles available and the number is increasing daily. We are one of the fastest-growing book organisations in the UK. Generally, all our books are in stock and available for immediate shipment. Orders are typically dispatched within 2 working days.

In the unlikely event of a problem, we will always help to resolve issues — just contact us and we will respond promptly to your query — we are real people, not a faceless organisation.


Orders usually ship within 2 business days. In general, domestic shipments are set at a low flat rate of £2.50, based on books weighing up to 2.2 lb, or 1 kg (1,000 g). Additional books purchased as part of the same order or which exceed the basic 1 kg weight are shipped at £1.50. If your book order is particularly heavy or oversized, we may contact you in advance to advise you that extra shipping is required. Please note that all international orders are sent by Airmail and that international postal rates apply.

All international orders are sent via Airmail. Please Note: Although we always do our best to dispatch orders promptly, shipping times cannot be guaranteed once a package has been dispatched. We provide estimates based on the carriers' delivery times, and do not include Customs processing. If your order will pass through Customs, please expect a delay. If your book order requires special packing or paperwork, we may contact you to let you know that additional fees may be incurred.

We value your privacy and will never pass your personal information to any third party. We will also not store your payment information for any longer than necessary to complete the transaction.
