About Us


Sarah Key Books has specialised in children’s and illustrated books since 1987, and has occupied the Haunted Bookshop since 1993. Our shop is in a quiet passage in the heart of the City of Cambridge, in the shadow of the ancient church of St. Edward King and Martyr and just a few seconds from King’s College Chapel and the Market Square. We are open between 10am & 5pm, Monday to Saturday and closed on all English public holidays. If you are making a long journey or especially wish to speak to Sarah in person it would be wise to contact us in advance.

We are members of the P.B.F.A. a trade association for second hand and antiquarian booksellers and exhibit at numerous of their fairs in the U.K.  See our fairs diary page for details. Outside of our specialist area we carry a stock of literature, poetry, books of local interest and some general.

Links:   There are many sites of interest to book collectors and researchers, do visit our links page for more information.  Looking for sporting books? The best source in East Anglia and possibly the U.K. is Hereward Books of Haddenham.
