If you like books or book stores, then this must be on your list. We stumbled across this on a visit to Rochester, and saw the sign that it is the biggest second-hand book store in England. It is endless and never-ending. Amazing. It seemed...More

What a treasure the shop has a very small frontage but it just goes on and on. Thousands of books of all sorts. You could browse for hours.
