Waterstone's London Reviews

The same but oh so different... - Yes, it's a waterstones but wait, this one is different. It's the largest academic bookshop (alegedly) and in the many years I've been going there it's always had every book I've wanted in stock, and often I few I didn't know I wanted but now can't live without.

A friend from Bristol had been looking for a book for weeks, it wasn't on amazon, no bookshop in bristol had one, and he'd even struggled to order it. This waterstones had four copies on the shelf and the new work by the same author he didn't even know existed.

That's how good this place is!

Massive Bookstore - Generally speaking I wouldn't say that a Waterstones is worthy of special mention here, but the Gower Street location is a bit different. Located, as it is, beside the University of London, this Waterstones is in fact the school bookstore for the university. As such, it is absolutely packed to the gills with books, both academic and diversionary.

Situated over several floors in a large building on Gower street, the entrance is actually on Torrington Place. Different floors have different focuses, with the ground floor containing a lot more of the quickly moving books, best sellers and the like. But don't despair, you can find plenty of obscure and woolly thinkers represented here. There's also an in-store coffee shop, so if you feel the need to dive into your books right away, there is a comfortable opportunity to do so.

This may not be the very best bookstore in London, but it's got to be the best chain bookstore, and it is quite satisfying for most of your needs. They also have several desks to make orders and when I encountered them, I found the employees to be knowledgeable and helpful. Worth a visit if you're having a hard time finding your book.
