The Chaucer Bookshop

6–7 Beer Cart Lane Canterbury CT1 2NY

Two old houses have been knocked together to house this fine antiquarian and secondhand bookstore, with two storeys packed with shelves. The place is stocked with plenty of cheap paperbacks as well as rarities, arranged by theme. Careful when you go in, the mix of books is so eclectic that you can easily get caught up for hours thumbing through row after row looking for something perfect. If you spend the time, however, your bound to find it, there are certainly enough books for something there to be just right. More than you're typical second-hand store though, some of the antiques here are pricey first-edition beauties! The real deal.
