Where are we?

Our bookshop is housed in a fascinating, 15th Century, beamed building on the High Street in the historic town of Lewes, East Sussex. The outside has recently undergone a sensitive renovation, in keeping with the traditions of its history. Our large stock of books can be browsed on the ground floor where they are arranged in sections within the natural contours of the building.

Lewes Castle
A visit to the county town of Lewes offers attractions such as the 11th-century stone motte-and-bailey Castle, Anne of Cleves' House, the former residence of Thomas Paine (author of "The Rights of Man"), Harvey's Brewery, the Priory, Grange Gardens and a lovely riverside walk.

The shop is situated at the western end of the High Street, opposite the entrance to Westgate Street Car Park. Travelling west from the centre of Lewes, past the Law Courts and Castle on your right, through to the traffic light controlled one-way section (known locally as "the bottleneck") the shop is on your left hand side, just before the return to two-way traffic and at the top of a delightful cobbled lane.
