About City Walls Books and Music

City Walls Books and Music was founded in August 2012, although there has been a bookshop at 2, City Walls, Chester since 1991. Many people are familiar with the walls just above Rufus Court's well-known jazz bar, Alexander's, as a place to go to buy books. The shop was originally called Words and Music and has also been known as Gildas Books, featuring in Stuart Maconie's Pies and Prejudice under this name.
