The York New Year Book Fair is an established and friendly event.  With around 100 dealers from all over the country, situated on just one floor, the fair offers a rich and delicious variety of choice for anyone interested in books. Thousands of second-hand, antiquarian and rare items will be on offer from all areas of fiction and non-fiction, along with related ephemera. There are prices to suit all pockets. 

There is also a café at the fair, open all day, which offers hot and cold refreshments.

There are excellent parking facilities at The Knavesmire.  For those travelling by train, or who wish to make use of public transport, there is a free bus service running from the Memorial Gardens to the book fair all day long.  The buses leave the Memorial Gardens and The Knavesmire every thirty minutes.
