York is a treasure trove of hidden bookshops – and we’re going to explore the best ones! We’ll start at one of the most historic buildings owned by the University of York, King’s Manor. At 11 O’Clock we’ll head off into town, starting at the Grimoire Bookshop, good for fans of sci-fi and fantasy, before moving onto Little Apple Bookshop, which is renowned for its eclectic selection and some signed books. We’ll then head to Minstergate Books, one of the prettiest and cheapest stores overlooking the Minster.
After these three we’ll break for lunch at one of York’s best coffee shops, especially good for cakes – Wheldrakes!
After lunch, we’ll head to Amnesty Bookshop, Ken Spelman, and Fossgate Books, all of which contain rare and old books, and are perfect for those looking for special editions or secret treasures.
We also hope to have some special discounts ready for your arrival!
