Brilliant. The owner is really friendly and is clearly passionate about books. There is so much to explore and it has the largest selection of fantasy and science fiction books I have seen in one place.

We discovered this little gem after a walk along the seafront & spent a couple of hours poking around in this jam-packed treasure trove of books. It’s unusual to find such a classic old bookshop, & definitely worth fitting it into your trip.

The man that runs this book shop knows all the books that he has, and where each one is. I dont know if they will have them, but if you ask the guy there he will be able to tell you straight away
