People's Bookshop Durham

People's Bookshop Durham is an independent bookshop mainly specialised in second-hand books about local history, politics, biographies, poetry, collectable books and all kinds of little ideas and forgotten stories of the local community. Have a look inside and browse through the eclectic selection of books.


Despite its compactness, Durham offers a wide range of shopping options amongst the intimate lanes and atmospheric narrow streets, much of which is closed to traffic making for a pleasant and relaxed experience. Its Victorian Market, monthly Farmer’s Market add additional colour and life on selected days throughout the week while The Prince Bishop’s Centre and Gates’ Centre offer all the high street and designer brands one could wish for. Unique to the city is the Fowler’s Yards, where artists and craftspeople create and sell their specialities such as glass, metal and textile work. There is even a micro brewery.
