Hayling Book and Music Venue is a veritable oasis of nostalgic delight. There's always a warm welcome from the owner James who is customer service personified. And hey presto, serendipity, I'm always able to purchased some modestly priced CDs and interesting books which I'm hard-pressed to source elsewhere. Simply magic and living the dream.

Excellent place with excellent prices! And the guy inside was super friendly and helpful!
You have to really look for something you want, but it’s definitely worth the look

A small and very friendly second-hand book and music shop close to Hayling Island sea front and one end of the seaside railway. Prices are extremely reasonable. CDs range from pop and jazz to classical music, books cover most genres, and there are often unusual finds - but don’t expect to find valuable books: it is more a haven for book readers and book lovers than for collectors of antiquarian books or first editions.

This small secondhand book & record shop is within sight of East Stoke Corner on the sea front. At every visit you will feel welcome in the calm, quiet atmosphere. When Hayling Island is a bridge too far, then at any time you can visit the shop in 'virtual reality' via Amazon.
