Chaloner Street, Cleveland
"The largest independent bookshop in the North East of England opened in 1981; my family moved to the town in 1988; I was 11. I would not love books so much or probably not have been a bookseller if it was not for this place."
Recommended by Mark Farley.
"An immaculately run bookshop with a sizeable card shop attached. A good, if basic range that means you can pop in and buy a lot of your book needs off the shelf. Also, a very reliable ordering service, and a good kid's section, too."
Recommended by Steve Robinson.
