Barter Books

Barter Books is located in a beautiful old Victorian Alnwick railway station, in Northumberland, U.K., right where passengers once bought their train tickets. Barter Books comforts its customers with a homey feel — fires in the winter, a buffet, and a waiting room for people to sip coffee and read.
