Keel Row Books is the longest established antiquarian and second-hand bookshop in the North East of England. We travel countrywide to buy and sell rare and second-hand books, maps, photographs and ephemera.

The shop is based in an rambling Victorian townhouse in historic North Shields, close to the mouth of the River Tyne. We specialise in signed, rare and antiquarian books, fine bindings, literature and modern first editions, children's books, and the history and topography of Northumberland, Durham and Newcastle, including the works of Thomas Bewick. The bookshop carries an extensive stock of second-hand books.
