Come and discover the original bricks and mortar Discworld shop, founded by Sir Terry Pratchett and Bernard & Isobel Pearson in beautiful Somerset, land of Cheddar cheese and cider apples, where the ancient barrow-pimpled landscape will transport you across the Chalk to Ankh-Morpork's official twin town here in Wincanton.
Getting here is a true test of Discworld devotion (our founders were more concerned with the sheer fun of it all than matters of footfall), but once you've made the journey you can call yourself a true Pratchett pilgrim!
When you visit the Emporium you’ll be at the heart of a fandom, treading where the author himself wandered, brandy glass in hand. A place where cunning plans were hatched, sparks of magic were made, and friendships forged between author, fans and makers.
A stone’s throw from the attractions of Longleat, Glastonbury and a certain ancient rockery called Stonehenge, the Emporium is a cosy and magical place where you can find the complete collection of Terry’s books, mingle with fellow fans, and find a wealth of products and ephemera that bring the characters and concepts of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld to life.
When visiting or contacting the Discworld Emporium you’ll likely be greeted by one of our founding members - those who knew and worked with Terry – the same folk who design our wares, run our website, ship your orders and care as much about Terry Pratchett's books as you do. We wear our role of preserving the heritage of Terry's world and fandom with pride, and love nothing more than sharing memories of the man in the hat with fellow fans. We look forward to giving you a warm welcome and hearing your own Discworld stories!
Find us just off the A303, the main route from London to the southwest. We're at the top of the High Street, conveniently opposite the Memorial Hall car park. Wincanton has three car parks in total each offering free parking. The Emporium has a disabled bay directly outside, and we offer access for mobility scooters and contraptions.
It goes without saying that the Emporium is no ordinary shop. From our humble store in Wincanton, we also run our global mail order business and design house.
We are therefore closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays to tackle vital stuff like mail order, marketing, website work and to get our lovely merchandise designed & created.
Thank you for your understanding!
