|Yorkshire has one of the highest concentrations of rare, secondhand, and antiquarian booksellers in the country, and also hosts Europe's largest annual Rare Book Fair. Although the internet has undoubtedly made it easier to find a particular title, it is much like ordering a take-away from a fast food restaurant, great if you know exactly what you want - but how often do you walk into a restaurant knowing in advance what you are going to order? So it is with bookshops, it is the pleasure and surprise of coming out with something completely unexpected that makes them a unique treasure - enjoy your trip, in whatever direction it may take you.

If you are planning a trip out to the Yorkshire Coast, the North York Moors, Yorkshire Dales, or travelling south towards Sheffield, then take a look at the bookshops on the way. None of the shops are more than 50 miles away from York Minster. Some dealers work from private premises so please check the details and it is always best to ring first if travelling from afar.
