Whiling away a couple of hours in a bookshop will be near the top of many people’s wishlist now that lockdown restrictions have been eased in England and Wales (though those in Scotland and Northern Ireland will have to wait a little longer for this – until 26 April). To celebrate, we want you to tell us about your favourite independent bookshop, whether it’s one near you that you’ve been keen to return to, or a gem you discovered on your travels.

Please make sure that it has reopened (or, in the case of Scotland and Northern Ireland, will do soon) before submitting your tip, and include the bookshop website, too.

If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.

Keep your tip to about 100 words

The best tip of the week, chosen by travel expert Tom Hall, will win a £200 voucher for a stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.

We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.

The competition closes on 20 April at 9am BST
