The second-hand bookshop

The second-hand bookshop at Kingston Lacy in Dorset

Kingston Lacy’s second-hand bookshop has books for everyone including children and adult fiction, all categories of non fiction, Folio society, Art and collectable Vintage.

Visiting the bookshop

The second-hand bookshop in the courtyard at Kingston Lacy is a great place to browse or pick up a bargain. In line with government guidelines you're required to wear a face covering indoors. Please bring one with you.


What's in stock? 

We receive frequent donations of books and regularly restock our shelves so there are always new gems waiting to be found. We have an excellent selection of fiction and non-fiction for adults and children, including some special, sought after Vintage, Art and Folio Society books. 

The bookshop is run by a team of knowledgeable and friendly volunteers who enjoy creating a well-stocked bookshop for you to enjoy.


We couldn't do it without you

All funds raised from book sales go towards garden conservation projects. To keep up with our fantastic collection we are always in need of book donations. If you are looking to clear some space on your shelves, please give us a call before bringing them in, to make sure we have space to quarantine the books before they go on sale.
