The Blue House Bookshop lives on Bootham in York, the ancient street of merchants running alongside the ruins of St Mary's Abbey and up to the city walls. The back of the shop is the former Abbey boundary wall and the rest of our building was partly added in Tudor times, then rebuilt after the siege of York in 1644 during the First English Civil War.
The books are new.
