Knole's literary connections
The bookshop takes its inspiration from Knole’s role as a hub for the leading British artists and writers of the 20th century. Eddy Sackville-West lived at Knole from 1926-1940, occupying a private apartment in the Gatehouse Tower.
Eddy was a musician, journalist and writer. His visitor book shows that he entertained many of his close friends at Knole, which included Bloomsbury writers such as Virginia Woolf, Vita Sackville-West, Aldous Huxley and James Lees-Milne.
The interiors and collections of Eddy's apartment at Knole have influenced the design and decoration of the bookshop. You can see Eddy's rooms for yourself by visiting the Gatehouse Tower.
