Taking place every second Sunday of the month in the Servants Hall of Elizabeth Gaskell’s House – one for the literary visitor’s bucket list, in any case – ‘possibly the best secondhand book sale in Manchester’ serves up cheap reads, and not just for copies of North & South. There are always both new and secondhand books for sale in the tearoom at the Grade II* listed neoclassical villa on Plymouth Grove, now an award-winning writer’s house museum in the UNESCO City of Literature open Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday 11am to 4.30pm, but this monthly fair is a chance to come and browse a wider selection of tomes, including a variety of fiction, art, gardening, photography, classics, biographies, history, OS maps and much more.

Admission to the book fair is included in the cost of admission to the house - £5 full price, £4 concessions, free under 16s.
