Barter Books


Barter Books is one of the largest second hand book shops in Britain and home to the original 'Keep Calm and Carry On' poster.

And if you love books, its also a little slice of book based heaven in the beautifully historic town of Alnwick. Barter Books has breathed new life into the former Victorian railway station. As well as a wide selection of books, there are also lovely open fires in winter time, plenty of seating areas dotted around to encourage you to browse through the books, a children's area with toys and lots of lovely books. My offspring's favourite bit of Barter Books is the model railway track running through the central area. The Station Buffet cafe provide a variety of refreshments to cater for those in need of coffee, tea and cakes.
