Lovely old bookshop in a beautiful old building. Treat yourself to a warm drink and a cake whilst browsing the excellent books. Cards too.

This is quite a unique and refreshing experience for book browsing. The book shop is full of nooks and crannies due to the age of the building with its different floor levels, walls and doorways. Offers a labyrinth of various displays of cards, books plus...More

If you like books then this is a dream shop. There is even a small area for coffee with comfy chairs. Great selection of greeting cards as well.

Great old fashioned bookshop which we would be very sad to loose in East Grinstead. Tea shop area on ground floor and extensive second hand section upstairs . Set in the attractive timber framed High Street where it fits in perfectly.
