Front of the original Blackwells bookshop

Blackwell's is a national chain of publishers and bookshops in the United Kingdom. Starting out as a bookshop selling academic books in Oxford, the firm grew to include a chain of bookshops and a publishing firm. The original shop, much expanded behind an unassuming front, still stands on Broad Street, Oxford; the company owns three bookstores on the same street covering different specialities, and several others in the town. Other Blackwell's bookshops also tend to have an academic emphasis and they are often located close to universities.

The company was founded in 1879 by Benjamin Henry Blackwell and is still owned by the Blackwell family. Companies within the chain include: Blackwell's Online Bookshop; Blackwell Ltd.; Blackwell's Publishing.
