Barter BooksAny visit to Northumberland is incomplete without a couple of hours browsing around Barter Books in Alnwick.
Barter Books is one of the largest second hand book shops in Europe in a converted railway (which used to house the old Alnwick branch line).
We have been going to Barter Books for many years, and every time we go it seems to get bigger and better. The choice of books is incredible- you can also hunt out second hand CDs, DVDs, VHS videos, 33 LPs...you name it.
In the winter there is always a warm fire going and a coffee pot simmering away- this is a place in which you can easily while away a few hours.
Barter Books is at the opposite end of the town to Alnwick Castle in a handsome old Victorian railway station. If you are coming in to town from the south or Boulmer, itīs right at the start of the town proper on the left.
