Tucked away behind Hexham's main shopping streets is this excellent bookshop: well stocked, imaginative displays and a friendly atmosphere that encourages browsing. They also sell an impressive range of quality greetings cards. Well worth seeking out if you are in Hexham.

This small independent book shop is in the centre of Hexham is well worth a visit: it has some good book recommendations; a couple of cosy sofas; and an unusual selection of greetings cards. Very child friendly and it also has its own book group.

This has to be my favourite independent bookshop. The owners manage to have selected a really good choice of books so we found it easy to find things we knew we'd enjoy. There is a big sofa for sitting and browsing through the latest title,...More
