The Stables Bookshop at Winchester City Mill

Wooden shelves stacked with second-hand books and a china jug

Tucked away in the old stable block here at Winchester City Mill, our second hand bookshop is a hidden gem. Come in and have a browse on your next visit.

From fiction and crime to gardening and natural history - hundreds of titles are regularly updated, including a collection of rare edition and signed books. 

Whichever book you do decide to purchase, the money you put in goes directly towards funding the conservation of our historic water mill. 

Book donations appreciated

We rely on donations from our visitors to keep the bookshop ticking over. Perhaps before your next visit, have a rummage through your library at home and see if there's a few titles you'd be happy to part with. You can leave donations of books at Visitor Reception.
