Welcome to our second-hand bookshops, where the emphasis is on quality, value-for-money, and building community spirit. 

Few people know that the first Amnesty ‘Bookshop’ began as a stall based in the Hammersmith & City Line tube station, run by Amnesty members Dick Langton and Christine Pain to raise funds for local campaigns. We have come a long way since then, and today there are ten second-hand bookshops around the country, each with its own unique personality.

Shopping with us means that you get to indulge your love of books whilst making a vital contribution towards our human rights campaigns. And there is a lot to tempt you, from rare collectables to contemporary fiction, classics to children’s books, graphic novels to foreign language and all the history, politics, social sciences, and arts you can carry. Not to mention our top-quality cards and eco-friendly, Fairtrade, Amnesty endorsed gift range. 

Add to that your top-quality donations and the dedication of our volunteers, and you have a truly rewarding experience for all.
