The Bookshop Guide - the only guide to all the UK's secondhand and antiquarian bookshops, bookrooms, and market stalls.  Add a Bookshop

27.02.15. When I spoke to the owner of BooksIsell in 2010 he said that he was open 'when I'm here ...' but that he 'didn't have any books people would want to buy.' By contrast, new owner Brian Stringer says he has turned his passion for visiting bookshops into an occupation and 'welcomes fellow book lovers and collectors'. It could be time for another visit.  Add a comment

Shops by Town
Shops by Stock

We consider a 'shop' to be any business with a significant stock of secondhand or collectable books, that welcomes visitors at advertised times, or by prior appointment. This includes permanent units in antique markets, private bookrooms, and weekly market stalls. Entries in the Bookshop Guide are free, so why not take the opportunity to add your shop now.

Perhaps the most (in)famous bookshop guide was produced by Drif and old copies continue to delight customers and enrage many in the book trade. Drif reviewed the owners as much as their shops or stock and revelled in their eccentricities.

In the spirit of Driff we invite you to review the nation's bookshops and tell us which you think are the good, the bad and the ugly.
