Lots of stories to explore at Dudmaston
Well thumbed, dog-eared, spine cracked. All these qualities add to the charm and distinction of a well-loved book.
Nestled in the Brewhouse Courtyard, the bookshop at Dudmaston houses a large collection of pre-loved titles. From well-known children’s books to classic romances, there’s something for everyone to choose from.
Spend a few minutes browsing the shelves and you might re-discover an old favourite or feel inspired to try a new genre. If you’re a keen collector, come in to have a look through our selection of rarer books. The content of our shelves is always changing so it’s worth dropping in regularly to see what’s new.
Brand new books are a lovely luxury but they can be quite pricey and often lack the charm of their pre-loved counterparts. So if you're trying to capture a little one's imagination by encouraging them to get into reading, our collection is a good place to start. Funds raised in the bookshop are currently going towards the Brewhouse building re-roofing project.
" I love it when we get a new donation of books - you never know what might be in there, and what sort of person they will appeal to. "
If you’ve got any books at home that you’d like to donate, please don’t hesitate to bring them with you on your next visit. We gratefully receive all kinds of titles in varying conditions.
