In the early days, the CTS Bookshop sold CTS pamphlets, and a range of books published by other Catholic publishers. At that time it was not unusual for publishers, even small ones, to maintain retail bookshops to showcase their titles. In the ninety years since the CTS Bookshop first opened, almost all of these have closed; the fact that we are still open is testimony to the range and enduring appeal of the material we produce, and the consistent desire of the Catholic (and indeed non-Catholic) public for good books to support and nourish their faith.
The CTS Bookshop has had various postal addresses over the decades, reflecting the continuing development of the area around Westminster Cathedral. But although our street number may have varied a bit, we have always been within the close environs of the Cathedral, the heart of Catholic London.
