Waterstones Wigan is the leading bookshop in the historical town of Wigan. Situated within the Grand Arcade, we provide a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all our fellow book-lovers.

Wigan is a town with a rich and proud heritage. Orwell loved the town so much he wrote the famous 'The Road to Wigan Pier' about us! 

We have everything here that a book lover of any age could need, whatever your literary preference.  Fiction and Crime lead the way with our Sci-fi and Fantasy section ready to transport you to another world.  If the real world is more your slice of cake, we have Cookery, Sport, History and Travel to take you on a different adventure. 

Most importantly for the budding readers coming up through the ranks we have an inviting and exciting Children's section ready to fill the next generation's minds with exciting tales and adventures.  We'd also love to see you come down to our Saturday Story Time, held every Saturday at 11am, for the little ones - two tales and activities after.  So why not come down and see for yourself?

Waterstones Wigan, your local bookshop, where you'll be greeted with a smile and leave with a groaning bag full of books!
