York National Book Fair 2017

B+B York

Europe’s largest Book Fair is back and this time it’s going to be even better and bigger than before. Held at York Racecourse in the Knavesmire Suite, the York National Book Fair promises to attract all book enthusiasts from far and wide.

This year we celebrate the 42nd year that the fair has been running. Over 200 leading dealers will gather to offer rare, antiquarian, unusual and hard to obtain out-of-print books on all conceivable subjects. Prices will range from a few pounds to tens of thousands of pounds, so there will be items for serious collectors and first time-buyers alike. This year we welcome exhibitors from America, Canada, France, Germany, Israel, and Hong Kong.


Back in 1974, the White Swan Inn in York hosted the very first National Book Fair. The turnout was quite limited with only 20 exhibitors. Today the York National Book has grown considerably. It is now the largest, and many say friendliest, rare, antiquarian & out-of-print book fair in the U.K.

For collectors, you will be able to find books over 500 years old. For the more modern readers, there will be plenty of recently published works to review.

Access to the event could not be easier and there is unlimited free parking on the premises as well as a free shuttle bus from the Railway Station to the Fair every 20 minutes.


Literature is one of the firm British cornerstones. What better way to celebrate these heroes of the written word than by attending the York National Book Fair. If you are attending the event, please plan ahead. Accommodation is usually in high demand so book now to avoid disappointment. B+B York is perfectly situated.
