Wimpole's second hand bookshop

Bookshelves in our second hand bookshop

Wimpole’s second hand bookshop helps to raise money for conservation projects all around the estate. It's also a valuable addition to our stable block shopping hub.

Thanks to our dedicated team of volunteers and generous donations from visitors, the shop is stocked full to the brim with some fantastic titles.

You'll find a wide range of books to suit everybody. The bookshop, however, is subject to varying opening hours. To avoid disappointment, please call ahead if you wish to visit the bookshop specifically.

When it's closed there are always tables outside stocked with books for you to browse. With an honesty box outside for payment, you can pick up your next good read whenever you like.

Making a donation

We're incredibly grateful for all the donations given to Wimpole's bookshop and their sale helps directly with the upkeep of Wimpole Estate.  Recently we have received a large number of donations and due to space restrictions will not be able to accept any further books (apart from childrens) until the end of October.

Please note we are unable to accept the following items:
  • Multi-volume encyclopedias, e.g Britannica
  • Vinyl records
  • DVDs and videos
  • Magazines/periodicals
