Second-hand bookshop

Our second-hand bookshop is a quiet haven away from the castle’s windswept Inner Ward. It’s the perfect place to find your next good read while enjoying a cup of tea underneath the magnificent, original medieval roof beams.

Get Your Head in a Good Book

Whether you're a casual reader, a proud book worm or just looking for something a bit different, there are plenty of books on offer just for you.
