This shop also sells specialist books on subjects as diverse as natural history, lead mining, fishing and shooting, they also have a good selection of maps and books on walking in the area.They have an ever-changing stock of second hand books on a wide range of subjects as well as new bestsellers.Otherwise a great trip out for book lovers of any age.
Their sense of community is not confined to the immediate vicinity but expanded to a global awareness.Plus, they also sell classical and jazz CDs and gift cards.For very loyal customers, they run a loyalty scheme and they have their own gift tokens to spend in the shop.Original serialisations of Dickens, decrepit (but lovely) tomes on being a good 1890s wife, beginners' guides to undertaking, they're all there. The owners have commissioned wonderful murals and paintings for the inside of the station.Georgina Turner Slightly expensive second-hand books but a lovely location - they're housed in what used to be Alnwick Railway Station. Ian Bruntlett A huge secondhand bookshop, located in theold train station, on the edge of the quaint market town of Alnwick,about a 45-minute drive from Newcastle-upon-Tyne. My only caveat is that stations were never designed to be warm or cosy, so some underfloor heating might persuade people to stay even longer and venture into the furthest recesses of the shop floor away from the heaters.
