Welcome to The Writing Desk

Established in 2000, we are the UK's most experienced specialist independent fountain pen and writing equipment shop.

Based in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, we have been sending pens, inks and other writing equipment world-wide for 18 years. Proudly independent, we also have a real brick and mortar pen shop where you can seek expert advice and browse, try and buy everything shown on our website (and more).

We are the only pen shop in the East of England. We are just over half an hour away from Cambridge and around an hour away from Norwich. See our Contact page for full location information.
