 The Violin Shop

H. George & Son

Restorers, Repairers & Dealers in
Violins, Violas, 'Cellos, Double-basses and Bows
Valuations, Bow Rehairs & Repairs,
Strings and Accessories.


The Violin Shop is situated in Blackpool, the Lancashire, North West England resort. We are located on the first floor of an Edwardian bank building overlooking the principal square, and, beyond, the promenade and the north pier. Maybe not the obvious place to find a shop specialising in the repair, restoration and dealing of violins, but a haven of peace above the bustle of the town.

People often travel from all over the country and abroad to visit our premises and apart from the showroom and workshops, there are two small trying rooms where you will be able to spend as long as you need trying various instruments, with help and advice available if needed.

Long-time valuers and agents for Allianz Musical Insurance, formerly British Reserve, we advise your valuations to be kept up to date. After we have given the initial valuation certificate, updates can usually be done by telephone.

The Violin Shop was started by the ex-Hallé violinist Harry George in 1975, the business is now run by Kevin and Kathy George and we offer a mail order service of strings, accessories and sheet music. A short phone call and the goods will soon be on their way to you. 

We are always interested in purchasing good old violins, violas, 'cellos and bows.

Opening hours: Tuesday - Saturday from 9.00 - 5.00. Closed all day on Christmas Day, Easter Day, Bank Holidays.

The shop will be closed on Saturday, September 3rd for a family wedding.
