Pop into the shop anytime

Bailiffgate Museum shop specialises in books about the local history and culture of our amazing region. 

You can secure the items you desire by ordering online if you wish, or have them delivered to your home or anywhere in mainland UK as a gift. 

As well as the online store below, the shop itself is open all museum hours with an even wider selection . It offers visitors and passers-by an amazing range of books, maps, gifts, toys and DVD’s. Most of these relate to the North Northumberland area.

Many items we hold are difficult or even impossible to find anywhere else. You don’t have to pay a museum entrance fee to visit the shop so make sure you come and see for yourself what’s on offer the next time you are in Alnwick.
