Second hand bookshop

Books on sale in bookshop

We have an extensive selection of second hand books for sale from all genres. Pick up a bargain and settle down on the sofa or relax with your new book in a deckchair on the lawn.

Our second hand books are one of the most important fundraising avenues at Ormesby Hall, with every pound you spend staying at the Hall to help us revive the garden. We are currently raising money in the bookshop to go towards more spring bulbs for the garden.

The bookshop is situated on the first floor of the servant’s wing. In the bookshop you can sit and relax as you make your choice. There is everything from bestselling paperback fiction to classic books, suspenseful crime novels and children's books. There is an honesty box to pay for your chosen read.

Do you fancy a surprise read? We have 'date with a book', which gives you a brief description, but you won't know what the book is until you unwrap it at home.

 The second hand bookshop is managed by a team of national trust volunteers who give their time to sort new donations, restock the shelves and organise the books to make it easier for you to find.
