Hidden Gem

Never have the words don’t judge a book by its cover been so true! Barter Books is one of Britain’s largest 2nd hand bookshops and is housed within the old Victorian Railway station on the edge of Alnwick town. The engine sheds have been transformed into wide open spaces housing hundreds and hundreds of books of all ages for people of all ages. There are places to sit and enjoy flicking through the pages of something interesting or you can retreat to the station buffet for coffee and cake in the former waiting rooms.
