Re: Second biggest second hand book store in the UK?

Mags, that sounds similar to The Book Barn in Hallatrow, over 1 million books! Not far from Bristol.
It's fabulous, lots of books for 1 each and a lovely cafe.

Thanks Tess, I didn't know about that one and as you say, it's not too far away.

I'll keep that in mind

Very interesting, but also both too far away for me.
So what is the first largest secondhand book store in the UK?

Barter Books

Been there too about 10 years ago. It was the largest then and think it has to still be up there now.
