About Golden Hare Books
The Golden Hare was started by Mark Jones, a museum curator and art historian, with the initial plan of calling a children’s bookshop ‘The Golden Crocodile’. He commissioned his daughter Agnes, an artist-blacksmith, to create a mascot for the shop, and she returned with a gilded hare! Thankfully, he really liked it.
The Golden Hare first opened its doors in the summer of 2012 in the Grassmarket area of Edinburgh’s Old Town. After over two wonderful years in this location, the shop moved to the community-oriented area of Stockbridge in the New Town area, where it’s happily been for nearly three years.
Sorry, but we have no upcoming events for Golden Hare Books. If you know of an event taking place at Golden Hare Books or anywhere else in Edinburgh tell us about it
and we'll list it on the website, for free!
