Waterstones Trafford Centre is a literary oasis situated within the hectic retail destination that is the Manchester Trafford Centre.

Just 5 miles outside Manchester city centre, the Trafford Centre is home to 230 stores and provides over 11,000 free parking spaces.

Waterstones Trafford is a ground level store located in the Regent Crescent; offering a compelling book range, great events and extended opening hours to suit the needs of any shopper.  We pride ourselves on our Graphic Novel and Manga expertise, our busy Children's section and our wide array of bestsellers.

Keep an eye out for our frequent book signing events or pop along to our quarterly Manga Bazaar; a celebration of all things Manga and a great chance to show off your cosplay. Also join us every Thursday at 11am for 'read, wriggle and rhyme time' - an incredible multi-sensory storytime sensation!!       

So visit us as part of your big day out, visiting the many shops; Legoland or the Sea Life Centre; one of the 60 restaurants, cafes and bars in The Orient and the opulent Great Hall as well as a 20-screen Odeon cinema.
