The BEST vinyl shop in Dorset. Such friendly staff, amazing selection of music, always find something in their collection that I’ve been looking for. Prices are really good, and the pinball machine is always good fun! Really recommend these guys, and their sister shop Clocktower Too on South St which is stocked with some really unique bits.

What a wonderful experience. Not only a superb selection of quality vinyl but also a magical trip down memory lane with loads of memorabilia and a collection of fascinating, not for sale, items. Lovely team running the store, full of knowledge and great anecdotes.

Dear Crew, You may remember me, I brought in a box of records for your consideration on Saturday. I want to thank you, I am so impressed with the way you handled things, you took time, explained to me the values, showed great fairness and paid me within the same day ! ...with great friendliness and courtesy. Should I ever know someone looking for vinyl or memorabilia I shall definitely recommend. Thank you again. Many Bests, David

Clocktower Too hosts Bridport Literary Festival Book Signing

You might have missed it, but David Bowie was very much playing his part at Bridport Literary Festival this year, thanks to Clocktower Records Bridport. Some of our speakers just couldn’t resist posing with him after signing copies of their books. David, meanwhile, kept a dignified silence.
Thanks to one of our lovely stewards, Emma Bourne, for the photos. We have Clive Myrie, Chris Bryant, Megan McCubbin, Simon Heffer and Joanne Harris, enjoying Mr Bowie’s company.
