Latest news/events from Edinburgh West End

Waterstones Edinburgh West End is our capital city's premier destination for all things literary and cultural.

Our four-floor bookshop is right at the heart of the city, opposite Edinburgh Castle, on the capital's main shopping street; Princes St. We've got something for everyone: a large and inviting Children's department, a robust and exciting events programme, a Scottish department that reflects the richness and diversity of our great country, Stationery and Magazines for everyone. Our very own Café on the Second Floor, where we work with local suppliers to bring you the very best food and drink that the city has to offer, has breath taking views of the Castle and the Edinburgh skyline.
