Oxfam Bookshop Carlisle

Your local Oxfam Bookshop in the Great Border City. Just off the main high street we offer a wide range of excellent quality second hand books, from modern paperbacks to specialist non-fiction including art, history, spiritual, hobbies and a lovely range of children’s books to inspire young readers. We also have a variety of antiquarian books covering all genres.

In addition we are a music shop selling second hand musical instruments alongside a range of vinyl, CD and DVD. Curios include stamps, postcards, old coins, jigsaws and the occasional cuddly toy.

You will also find a great range of Source by Oxfam products available.
