Merger Enhances Possibly the Largest Secondhand Bookshop in the UK

Bookcase, possibly the largest and most serious-minded secondhand bookstore in the UK has now absorbed its sibling, Bookends, which is a shop for new books. The resulting megastore gives Carlisle a one-stop shop that makes the city an obvious weekend break for anyone into books. This is especially so for historians: the proximity to Hadrian’s Wall makes Carlisle a major destination for readers of Classics and the Ancient world. Nice cafe too. Here’s a gallery to show the changes the merger has brought. Click the Bookcase link above for an extensive gallery of the shop and more information on Carlisle and its bookshops. Also, more here about Cake & Ale, the in-shop cafe. Drool away.

    This looks great, I can’t think of may reasons to visit Carlisle but this would have to be the one and demand more than one day. It’s great that the one bookshop will probably give added strength to what is a precarious market
