Customer Reviews

“This is a good old-fashioned bookshop, crammed to the ceiling with all sorts of second-hand books, with something to satisfy every taste. I rarely leave it empty-handed. The proprietors are welcoming and friendly, which is becoming a rarity these days, when so many retail transactions are passed in silence.” Michael Moorey

“This bookshop is amazing. I often find myself popping to the shops only to reappear an hour later because I got side tracked here!! Nothing beats a real book and whatever the topic your interested in they will have it. Perfect place for info to help with school projects or research material or just to grab your summer pool reading material. Highly recommend but be warned once you’re inside it’s hard to leave.” Nina Rees Howe-Davies

“I would wholeheartedly recommend the Regent Second-Hand Bookshop: the stock is numerous and varied, the prices very reasonable, and those who run the shop are helpful and kind. I have been a customer for many years and rarely leave empty-handed, such is my weakness for interesting books. Whether you read the occasional novel or are a committed book collector, this shop is likely have at least one (if not several) which will appeal to your literary tastes.” Euan Mackay
