Hear first about exclusive events, book clubs and news, tailor your bespoke selection below

Waterstones Piccadilly is Europe's largest bookshop offering a peerless selection of titles across every genre. Over eight miles of bookshelves...

There is truly something to be found for even the most discerning of readers, from our flagship Fiction, Travel, History and Art sections or from across the wider branch. We are especially proud of our Children's section, modelled on a (Piccadilly) Circus theme and full of activities and events as well as the latest releases and old favourites.

Our friendly and knowledgeable booksellers are more than happy to assist you in exploring our shop and taking advantage of the many services we offer. These include our diverse and relaxed events programme, from Hillary Clinton to small launches and readings with the Royal Academy, as well as our complimentary gift-wrapping service and competitive worldwide shipping.

We also offer a selection of beautiful first edition books for something a little different, and are more than happy to try and source any individual requests. Relax in our cafes or bar, which are available for event bookings, and enjoy a locally sourced coffee and food.

Due to UK Trading Laws we trade from 12:00-18:00 on Sundays.

Please note that our cafes and bars are currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
