Waterstones Colchester - in the heart of Britain's oldest recorded town.

Situated on the bustling High Street, our shop boasts a frontage admired by Pevsner in his Essex guide - describing it as a "fine example of 1920's bank architecture".

Inside you'll find friendly and helpful staff, together with a broad range of books (for adults and children), gifts, games and other beautiful items befitting one of Britain's fastest expanding towns.
