We were desperate for a gift for a favourite teacher. This large bookstore was full of hidden treasures, nicely displayed and well priced. The young lady who served us was helpful and actually had time for us. In these days of electronic books and online purchasing, I sincerely hope that Waterstones will survive and grow, everybody should walk round these incredible shelves and see the little glimpses of the world on offer.

There is nothing like a book store. The staff are fabulous and everyone will find something that will peak their interests.

I love it (just because dantdm went there lol XD)

Quite a large range and my go-to store in Lakeside for nice stationery, but it never feels like there are many members of staff working and it feels a little messy in here at times.

This site has a lot on offer and I use it to buy box sets of books and at equipment. However there box sets they sell are sometimes it dated, is. You'll get a 5 box series, without the 6th and final chapter, which for £10 for a box set isn't bad..or £20 in some instances. A must for artists too and even school kids.

I love this store as the prices are very reasonable & there is a good collection of books & stationery as well as pocket money toys for kids. A selection of crafts are available. They also have a loyalty cars scheme.
