A Third-Generation Family Business, Est. 1971

Adrian Harrington began trading in 1971, as part of Harrington Brothers in the Chelsea Antiques Market on London's fashionable King's Road. He moved to Kensington Church Street in 1997 and in 2014, after 40+ years of bookselling in the capital, Adrian relocated to the historic Hall's bookshop in Royal Tunbridge Wells, occupying the first floor of this iconic building near The Pantiles area of the town. Hall's remain on the ground floor offering an exceptional range of quality used books and the basement houses a print gallery, providing maps, engravings, posters, photographs and inscribed material.

With three generations of Adrian's family now involved in the running of the business, we welcome both the opportunities and the challenges of book-selling in the Information Age. As such, we have recently joined the Independent Online Booksellers Association, which has been created to provide greater safety and confidence to those buying and selling books online.

Adrian Harrington Rare Books deal in a wide selection of literature, modern first editions, leather bound library sets, children's and illustrated books and fine and rare antiquarian and old books in all fields. We also offer a full and expert bookbinding and restoration service.
