The staff are great, ask them for a book and they'll look it up for you or if you need a suggestion they'll find you what you want. There's such a huge selection of books, it's great for educational books, language learning etc. and has a very clear layout. I'm an avid reader and love coming here for books that I can't find anywhere else!more

Best selection of fresh and classic readings. Despite how busy the place appears, it's quite large and spacious with 6 stories and plenty of seats. Restaurant and bar is on 5th floor (with a view) and the cafe is on the lower ground floor. Perfect for escaping the Piccadilly Circus madness outside and spending a quiet weekend afternoon reading.more

I'm ALWAYS a fan of bookstores. The bookworm in me cries every time I walk past a store so I thought I'd better pop in to this one on my way home.

On first glace I was so disappointed. A small fiction section, no children, crime or factual sections and no Bestseller list, only categories. Want a tour of London? Check out the London guide book section and their top 20. Want a diet book?...more

Waterstones never fails me. When I don't quite know what to do with myself, I come here and everything is better.

I can spend hours just browsing the books, I am one of those people who love books so much that it is a good thing I don't own a bookstore (I would keep them all and never let anyone buy one!). There are comfy chairs if you can snag one, where you can take your pile of books and...more
