  • Find a Waterstones in any corner of the city is a more than welcome news for those who like us getting lost between books. Retains is a bookstore chain (many branches, thematic gondolas, etc) but nevertheless small charms. The reviews of the books are written in adorable handwritten notes. They have thematic roundtables or by author arman which according to the branch. I had the opportunity to be in branches of the center of the city and more remote (e.g. Chiswick) and I confess that I could hardly not enter and buy something whenever I met any Waterstone. Final comment: don't forget to buy books in England! The books are very cheap in relation to Argentina because they pay no taxes. I have bought books that come out twice in Bs As. For my next visit to London, I will bring a bag full of books safely!

  • I literally love this place. It's so cozy you want to stay there for long time. It's never too crowded so you can enjoy yourself better. Variety of books and some stationary such as Moleskine. Even though for that I prefer to go to the moleskine store.
  • Good branch of the successful Waterstones bookshop brand. Well stocked. Well arranged titles. Looks right. Smells right. Like it.
  • Good luck finding the sci-fi section. The sign said it was downstairs but I couldn't see it...
  • Lovely Waterston. Child friendly. Everything you need without the huge crowds of central London.
  • Great book shop. Been there for 30 plus years!

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
