The second-hand bookshop at Nymans

The second-hand bookshop at Nymans

One of the National Trust's most popular bookshops, every year the proceeds from the sale of secondhand books fund vital conservation projects across the estate.

The bookshop

From its location in the centre of the garden, over 25,000 books are sold each year with funds raised going towards vital conservation projects across the estate. From fiction and crime to gardening and natural history - hundreds of titles are regularly updated by a dedicated team of volunteers who keep the bookshop open. 

We stock titles that appeal to a vast range of interests, from modern fiction to vintage books. Many visitors have been delighted to find a book for which they have been searching for several years.

We are always happy to receive donations of books - please contact nymansbookshop@nationaltrust.org.uk if you would like to make a donation.

Collector's books

We are fortunate to receive some donations of older and often more valuable books.

Some of these are for sale in the bookshop and are generally priced at under £10. There is also a list of the other titles we hold – if you are interested in one of these please ask the volunteer in the bookshop or email us nymansbookshop@nationaltrust.org.uk and we will contact you with more information.

A list of some of the collectable books we hold can be found in the two pdfs below. We would like thank everyone who has supported us over the 12 years of our existence, whether that has been in the donation or purchase of books. It is through this support that we have been able to have an eclectic mix of titles in a lovely atmosphere, which we know has made us such a popular destination.
