  • Incredible place. I could have easily spent all day here but I'm not sure my other half or my toddler would have been very pleased! Some beautiful and rare books - it's a wonder how we didn't spend more money! I hope to make this an annual visit.
  • This is such a find! Old fashioned, 1,000,000s of books, well it seemed like that anyway lol... Looks like something from Harry Potter... Very quirky, could spend hours rummaging through all these lovely books... As soon as you walk in, it smells of old books! I love that!
