What a fantastic little place this is - a real old fashioned book shop designed with people like me in mind. The proprietor is extremely knowledgeable about books and is happy to spend time with her customers. A lovely experience in the heart of Hexham.

Tucked away behind Hexham's main shopping streets is this excellent bookshop: well stocked, imaginative displays and a friendly atmosphere that encourages browsing. They also sell an impressive range of quality greetings cards. Well worth seeking out if you are in Hexham.
