193 Kensington High St, Kensington, London W8 6SH, UK – 020 7937 8432

Lovely selection of books, if you just step inside because it is raining something wonderful will catch your interest. Ordered a book some months ago, they never got back to me and whenever i go in to ask the response is 'still waiting for this to arrive from USA'. This seems a little odd when I have experienced only impeccable customer service over the years.

My fav. The best ginger book seller I have ever met. I mean, good looking nice and funny. Can you want anything more. So staff is really nice, books are great. I higly recommand.

203-206 Piccadilly, St. James's, London W1V 9LE, UK – 020 7851 2400

I love coming to this store. Yes, I buy books online, but being able to look at them, hold them and just pick up a selection of ones that take your interest is something that can't be beat. So, I always make an effort to buy in-store, as we need stores like this! This is, I believe, the largest bookshop in Europe and it shows, with a wide selection of all genres. There's a lift for access to each floor and a cafe if you want a drink or something to eat. The staff have always been friendly and helpful whenever I have visited, so I can only recommend this store highly.

Huge Waterstones open long hours. Comfortable chairs on the first floor and a cafe and restaurant on the top floor. The size of the place mean it has extensive crime and science fiction sections that I enjoy so I call in when I can. This branch is on Piccadilly so convenient for the RA as well as everything else.
