The Royaumont Bookshop and Store brings together culture and wellness in a shop that is not overwhelmingly large, and well removed from the crowds and the noise.

Make the most of the abbey’s serenity to find – among our 4,000 items – THE book that was meant for you, thanks to our advisors’ recommendations, or shop for an original gift that doesn’t break the bank.

The bookstore is a real window on the abbey and the Royaumont Foundation, with a vast selection of art books, reference books, and essays on plants and gardens, architecture, history, dance, music… it also stocks novels, graphic novels, cookbooks, children’s books, paper products and cards, selected by our independent teams.

Music lovers will find what they were looking for in our remarkable selection of albums, that grows regularly as artists stay or perform at the abbey.

We also make a point of putting local and artisanal products center stage, be they teas, herbal or otherwise, jams, soaps, scented candles, jewelry.

And we also sell a range of products that are exclusive to Royaumont, including honey made by our bees!
