Barter Books in Alnwick, Northumberland. One of the biggest second-hand book shops in Britain! Free tea and coffee next to a roaring fire plus a cafe further inside that serves food. Yum. Used to be an old railway station. One of my favouritest places to browse for old books :)

Prior to "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" only ground-floor interior sets, such as the kitchen, existed for The Burrow, while all exterior shots were generated with CGI. “We wanted everything - from the furniture through to the crockery on the kitchen table - to look as if it had been bought in second-hand shops, picked up at swap meets, or rescued from curbs.” - Stephenie McMillan #HarryPotter

This is a bigger and better versi...
