Lyme Regis, Dorset, UK

Recommended by Hazel Kingston, UK.

Hazel said: "What interested me about that bookshop was the wide variety of categories stocked. As what I bought weren't antique or valuable secondhand books, I can't really say much about pricing. I bought classic Penguins like a Henry James novel for about £2.50 only. It's just one of those characterful places that you enjoy rummaging around."

The Sanctuary Bookshop is Ten Years Old this year, and to be found in central Lyme Regis. Opened in August 1997. The bookshop has ten rooms of books on four floors, the complete range of Beryl Cook Cards & Prints, artwork by Hundertwasser and Erte, and Cat Art by Ollie Lett. They have a very good stock of quality paperback literature, a reading room with comfortable armchairs, a floor of books mostly £1 or less, and, if desired, some overnight accomodation for book lovers. Lyme Regis itself, (the Pearl of Dorset), lies at the very heart of a section of the UK's South West Jurassic Coast renowned for its fossil beds.
