Attingham's Grooms' Rooms Second Hand Bookshop is full of hidden gems. With rooms of books over two floors whether you're looking for a story to get lost in, or something more factual to discover, there's a huge range to choose from. The bookshop is open daily from 10am to 4pm.

With four rooms full of books you'll find it hard to leave Attingham without a new read! The bookshop is open daily.

In line with government guidance you're required to wear a face covering in most enclosed spaces, please bring one with you. For the safety of staff and visitors we’ve introduced social distancing measures and contactless payment methods are preferred. It is through your support that we are able to continue looking after Attingham for everyone, for ever – thank you.

Adult fiction and children's books can be found on the ground floor, and factual and reference books on the first floor.
