Waterstones Peterborough is the city's first choice for all things book related.

“So often, a visit to a bookshop has cheered me, and reminded me that there are good things in the world.” 

- Vincent van Gogh

Set over two floors, our store is the well-loved first choice for the book-buyers of Peterborough. Located only a stone's throw from Peterborough Cathedral, resting place of Catharine of Aragon, we offer a relaxed atmosphere, ideal for any book browser. Stocking a wide range of titles, including many books and guides on the local area, we also keep Greetings Cards, Board Games and Stationery. Our friendly staff are always willing to recommend a new or favourite book, or just to chat about all things bookish.

We have a large Children's Department and like nothing more than encouraging our younger readers to discover an exciting new read. Strong links to many of our local schools mean that we often provide book stalls at author events. We also have a varied programme of author talks and signings which are held in conjunction with Peterborough Central Library, along with being the official bookseller of the Peterborough Festival, where keynote speakers having included David Starkey and Dame Shirley Williams. Whatever your taste in reading we are sure to have something to tantalise your literary taste buds.
