Enjoy a quick lesson on these rare species, make note of some essential tips on how to maintain a vivarium, and take home a reptile as a pet of your own.
Housed in a historic grist mill, the Bookmill is an independent book shop selling second hand textbooks, journals, novels and similar stuff. Though, the focus here is on educational books and reading materials, it has other genres of books too. With its stock almost reaching to a whopping 40,000, it certainly does have an envious collection. You can sit in any of its cozy room and browse through their books; most of the reading rooms offer splendid view of the adjoining river. Apart from that, Bookmill also has a concert space that hosts variety of events throughout the year. For more details, call ahead.
