Going back again.....this time for a full day with carrier bags and credit card! This place is THE place to go for booklovers, wonderful shelves, well stacked and sorted. Shame you are a round-trip of almost 100 miles from home, but worth the journey !

Baggins is really quite well organised. You go through alleyways of books which makes the experience quite entertaining with the many unexpected and surprising finds. I was looking for good biographies of music composers: I found two great vintage books on Brahms and Prokofiev, dating...More

Loved this bookshop which is on different floors and goes back for what feels like miles, Tardis like. Spent far too long browsing around and came out with two books which Ive been looking for for quite a while. Nice to see a busy bookshop

What a treasure the shop has a very small frontage but it just goes on and on. Thousands of books of all sorts. You could browse for hours.

Tardis-like Baggins Book Bazaar extends well beyond its modest shop-front into rooms, then further rooms, both on the ground floor and above. It's all the more impressive that it's divided into best themes with every book neatly stacked on shelves, where so many other second-hand...More

I love books and to me a full bookcase is a happy bookcase. My partner and I "popped" in to Baggins only to spent an hour or 2 perusing the many categories available. We left with so many more books than planned and will definitely...More

In keeping with the old high street, antique shops, charity shops and vintage shops. Could do with more signage but plenty of books
