For a local second-hand bookshop look no further than Catching Lives Books, the fund-raising bookshop for Catching Lives which is run entirely by a dedicated team of volunteers.
We occupy the most photographed building in Canterbury after the Cathedral! The Crooked House (also known as Sir John Boys House) is a delightfully skewed 17th century half-timbered three story building at the extreme end of Palace Street. It has projecting jetties over Palace Street and Kings Street and is opposite the famous Kings School.
We have a huge range of second-hand and collectable books and run entirely by a dedicated team of volunteers.
The Book Shop is open daily from 10.30-5 pm
See you soon!
We welcome donations. Please email email@example.com if you have items you would like to donate.
