We'll continue to be fully open online and FREE deliveries will continue in Harrogate and Knaresborough, every Friday morning, so if you can't get in to the shop, don't worry. Once again, we'd like to express our deep and sincere thanks to all our customers for their continued support. We're only still here because of you lot, and we will never forget that. 

Cases of Covid-19 are thankfully falling again in Harrogate. Staff at Destination Venus will continue to wear face coverings in store to protect our customers. We respectfully request that all customers who can wear a face covering continue to do so when visiting us.


We will also continue to provide hand sanitiser, keep the shop space well ventilated and encourage all customers to maintain a distance of 2m from each other when shopping with us. Your health, safety and wellbeing are important to us.





Who we are and how we came to be...

Founded in 2005 Destination Venus is Harrogate's independent comics store, hanging out under the stairs at the Everyman Cinema on Station Parade. We love comics, and we want you to love them too. 

Our current Proprietor has been involved in comics for more than thirty years (he asks us to point out that he started young...), and was an English Teacher for more than a decade and a half. We are passionate about comics, about stories, about literature, literacy, art and science.

Whatever comics you're into, we'll supply them. Our staff are all long time comics geeks - if you need recommendations we'll happily make suggestions based on the things you like.

So, take a look around our online self, and then come and see us for real!
