We offer two floors of both new and old books in a former builder’s yard at the centre of Alfriston.

Named Independent Bookshop of the Year in 2007, we continue to offer outstanding service and a warm welcome to all readers and book lovers, with a hand-picked selection of books displayed in a lovely setting.
