Browse our second hand books

Visitors looking at books

We have an extensive selection of second hand books for sale of all genres. Pick up a bargain and settle down in an armchair or on the lawn and while away an afternoon.

We have two second hand book shops at Dyffryn, the Red Library and one in The Gallery cafe. Our second hand book sales are one of the most important fundraising avenues we have, every pound you spend stays at Dyffryn and helps us revive the house and gardens.

This year we are raising money to restore 4 paintings by Margaret Lindsay Williams. 

Red Library

Situated in the house the Red Library book shop is our main book shop. With comfy sofas and armchairs you are welcome to sit and read for as long as you wish. The chandelier in this room was restored and reinstated using money raised from our book sales in 2015. The Red Library bookshop is open 12pm to 4pm every day (last entry 3.30pm).

The Gallery 

Grab a book whilst you enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of cake over looking the gardens. The Gallery book shop is open 10am to 6pm every day (last entry to the gardens is 5pm).

Both bookshops have an honesty box, if you don't have change you are welcome to pay at the Visitor Welcome Centre on your way out.
