Fifteenth Century Bookshop, Lewes

An incredible building on Lewes High Street

The Fifteenth Century Bookshop is an incredible building at the top of Lewes High Street. The bookshop is housed in a fascinating, 15th Century, beamed building. The outside has recently undergone a sensitive renovation, in keeping with the traditions of its history. Their large stock of books can be browsed on the ground floor where they are arranged in sections within the natural contours of the building.

Book-lovers and browsers will find a paradise in this shop where the constantly changing stock ensures that every visit reveals new treasures. This is the 20th anniversary of the owner, Susan Mirabaud, taking over the shop and a lifetime’s interest and experience in books of all kinds enables her to help with all sorts of “booky” enquiries.
