10 of the best: Secondhand bookshops

The Book shop in Wigtown, Dumfries and Galloway is Scotland’s biggest second-hand ­bookshop and “A work of art”. Inside, a mile of ­shelving holds books on all subjects and prices. Local history books are a ­speciality.

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 :)
